“Healthy Little Eaters” was set in motion in 2014 at “Spyridoula Kokkali” Foreign Language School in Acharavi, Corfu, as a project of healthy eating, compost-making and organic farming. It aimed at reversing the status quo in the destructive dietary habits of the students. It started out by simply rewarding the students who consumed healthy snacks during breaks, went on with the production of compost from the peels of the vegetables and fruit they consumed, the construction of a greenhouse inside the Foreign Language School and the creation of a seed bank. The project evolved even further when it broke away from the confines of the Language School and encouraged members of the local community to participate in a variety of ways. As a result, the activities diversified, including training seminars from dieticians and doctors, visits to local fresh food industries, guided tours in greenhouses, trips to Natura-designated areas, as well as the creation of social messages which were very well received by social media users.
