Empowering Elementary School Children to Live Healthier Lives

"Among the most effective programmes are those that promote mental health, healthy eating and physical activity. In some studies, peer-delivered health promotion was found to be effective, compared with teacher-led interventions, and this approach was highly valued by the young people involved."
