These problems are seriously tackled by the recent legislation of education
and training system (Law 107/2015), with particular regard to the prevention
of obesity and stressing the importance of the physical and dietary education.
Schools are, indeed, the place where it is possible to improve the
habits of the future citizen.

After a general introduction, the essay presents some considerations,

of teachers.
