The chance of a child to develop physically and mentally healthy depends on attention, care, support and many environmental conditions.
Healthy growing up begins in the womb.
Behaviour patterns that shape health are already consolidated at an early age.
It is therefore important to give children a good start in life right from the beginning.
This includes among other things
Better early prevention than aftercare
Health promotion and prevention are particularly important for children. Pediatrics and youth medicine can treat many diseases very effectively today. Nevertheless, health promotion and disease prevention remain priorities. This is all the more true as new challenges arise due to changing living and environmental conditions, such as a sharp increase in obesity and psychosocial disorders.
