Sport facilitates a healthy lifestyle - that we've known for a long time. At 1. FC Union Berlin, however, the focus is not only on physical activity, but also on a healthy and balanced diet. This applies to our professional players, as well as, to the junior and women's departments and to the many youth projects offered by the club.
Interest in healthy nutrition is to be particularly encouraged among young people as is the handling of natural foods. Under the guidance of our foundation "UNION VEREINT. Shoulder to shoulder", Union are currently working on expanding the content of the popular holiday camps to include a comprehensive lesson on nutrition. The participating children are to be sensitized to balanced food through meals prepared together.
Union Berlin also succeeded in attracting publicity to healthy nutrition through the prominent support of the "Bio-Brot-Box Berlin-Brandenburg" initiative by former Union professional Christian Stuff. For the first time in 2013, "Stuffi" was involved when, together with many other supporters, 52,000 breakfast boxes were put together for some of the first-grade pupils in Berlin.
