Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle
Around the world, we support organizations and initiatives that encourage food literacy and physical activity.
Providing Nutrition Education and Resources
In addition to these resources we also provide signature programs addressing the unique health and nutrition needs of underserved communities.
We launched Health 4 Schools, a nutrition and exercise program for school children in the United Kingdom, in 2004. In 2007, the program was expanded to Russia by partnering with Charities Aid Foundation. By granting $1.3 million over three years, we will reach more than 10,000 Russian families. In 2009, we launched the program in Ukraine and Lithuania. The Mondelēz International Foundation is exploring similar programs in Australia, China and five countries in Europe.
Health in Action
In 2010, our Mondelēz International Foundation began partnering with INMED Partnerships for Children to launch a school-based nutrition program called for children in Brazil. It will provide $2.25 million over three years to help children ages five to 14 learn about good nutrition, physical activity, basic hygiene and sanitation instruction. Children will also tend gardens to grow fresh produce for their schools and the surrounding community.
Alimentarnos Para Vivir Mejor - Eating to Live Better in Mexico
In Mexico, 42 percent of children under the age of five suffer from a nutrition-related health problem. To address this need, Kraft Foods, in partnership with Save the Children Mexico, created the Alimentarnos Para Vivir Mejor (Eating to Live Better). The program takes a three-tiered approach to combating health and hunger issues: nutrition education, physical education and personal development.
