1,904 primary school children in 157 classes from all parts of Baden-Württemberg, split into a control and an intervention group were accompanied and scientifically evaluated by an interdisciplinary team of researchers at Ulm University. The evaluation showed that the physical fitness already increased after one school year and unhealthy habits decreased. Further results are shown on the right side (click on image for close-up).
The aim of the Baden-Württemberg Study was to evaluate:
- the intervention program
- its effectiveness and sustainability
- changes in the school environment
- children‘s health and physical activity
