Balanced Living through Healthy Nutrition Habits (BLHNH) addresses the challenge of promoting a mutually reinforcing combination between Sport activity and healthy practices of living (including proper nutrition and non-sedentary lifestyles) as a means of enhancing a greater physical and mental wellbeing at the level of the youth.The audience of project beneficiaries at the ultimate level is composed of young people aged 16-24 in partner countries and Europe. The main youth sub-category addressed is composed of youngsters with fewer opportunities (NEETs, early school leavers) with a view to addressing the direct relationship between low rates of physical activity and belonging to disadvantaged groups.
