The Month of Mobilization of School Health, opened on Monday (5), in Porto Alegre (RS), will have activities to prevent obesity among children and adolescents until April 7. The program will also involve the families of students in public education and raise awareness about the importance of good health for development since childhood.

The final report of the School Health Action, made in the second half of 2011 showed that among 3382 students evaluated, 330 (equivalent to 9.8%) were overweight and 280 (8.3%) were already obese. The positive result is that 64.3% (2,174 students) had good quality nutrition. The participants were 45.9% of the total 7,366 students enrolled.

The opening was in the Colony of Fishermen's Island Painted, where children of the community attended a lecture and practical demonstrations on healthy eating habits. Before the ceremony, the approximately 1,200 students of the Municipal School of Grade 1 Warrior Afonso Lima, in Lomba do Pinheiro, underwent anthropometric measurements.

By the end of the year, 14 schools will also receive other members of the municipal departments of Education (SMED) and Health, in conjunction with the team of Professor Roberto Costa, School of Physical Education, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, for evaluation Anthropometric and dietary habits of students. Those who are outside the ideal weight and following diets are not recommended and referred for follow-up examinations with doctors and nutritionists of the Basic Health Units relating to each school. It is important to discuss the problem of obesity, says the physical educator and researcher Ufrgs Roberto da Costa Fernandes.

Beyond the technical, another aspect of the project accounts for the prevention of childhood obesity through the dissemination of the qualities of a healthy diet. Because of this, also occur on Saturdays, meetings with professionals in the school community to expose the benefits of, for example, natural foods. Already in this first Saturday (10), attend meetings of the members of his own Warrior Afonso Lima, beyond EMEFs St. Peter and Professor Judith de Araujo Macedo, where is the coordinator of the nutrition sector Smed, Annelise Baker Krause.
