This program was designed to educate the Liga MAC students and their families in basic areas of personal health care, such as healthy eating, regular exercise and dental hygiene, in order to prevent obesity and its associated diseases.

The overwhelming increase in the levels of overweight and obesity in the general population, particularly children and young people, predisposes them to develop chronic-degenerative diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. These diseases already generate a great economic burden to our health system, due to all the ailments and complications attributed to these diseases, which not only add to the constraints in the health system, but also reduce the quality and life expectancy of millions of adults of income earning age as well as seniors.

An interdisciplinary team of Mexican professionals (nutritionists, medical doctors and physical educators) carry out this program that consists of 10-monthly-sessions during the school-year.
