In the Educational System

Not just a "lesson in health" but health in each lesson: kindergarten and schools significantly effect our children's knowledge, perceptions and habits – and also us, as parents.

As a joint National Project of the Ministry of Health and Education, Efsharibari is leading the transition to healthier nutrition at school and in the kindergarten schedule and during holidays and birthdays, and at the same time – is increasing the percentage of physically active students. We have gathered here for you the various programs, laws and regulations that are important to know and also tools and guides to activities that can be of use to you – principals, teachers, and of course parents who are a part of the healthy change in the education system in Israel.
