As the objective of this initiative is to promote sports and healthy eating amongst youngesters, there will be cookery workshops as well focused on preparing delicious meals with vegetables and fruit.

If your children are very much into skiing, on Wednesday 17th of October at 2pm they will also be able to meet Croatian skier Ana Jelušić and ask her about her participation to the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City when she was only 15.

As mentioned above, all sports activities are free of charge.
