Stalderfamily from Puppikon (TG)
Living healthily can sometimes be very difficult indeed. Our modern lifestyle means we are doing less and less exercise. So everyone who wants to be fit has to do something for it. How can a family achieve this objective? The way we are brought up has an early impact on our lifestyle that lasts a lifetime. That is why we wanted to know from 10 families from all corners of Switzerland what they imagine a healthy life looks like and what they are doing to achieve it. The result is a potpourri of all sorts of peculiarities, likes and dislikes, which make each one of these families a unique clan.
