It´s a well known fact apples are a big source of vitamins, they supply our body with energy and contain many nutrients useful to our skin. One apple per day evidently improves our well-being. It´s a fruit that keeps us young. It´s a symbol of everlasting vividness and longevity.
Today Slovakia and the whole world fights against the increasing amount of diseases caused by bad nutrition. Obesity affects more and more children and young people. Due to this fact the Slovak Foundation of Silvia Gašparovičová – Education and Health for Everybody pays attention to a healthy life-style and support of eating tasty fruit instead of sweeties. This year can the children change their sweet chocolate with a tasty apple. Projects of Silvia Gašparovičová aimed at health addressed some sponsors – in the past could the First Lady e.g. donor mineral waters to schools.
