Comments Healthy life-style requires development of life skills to start in early childhood, therefore child health promotion is so important. Lithuanian health statistics show that only 43% of people over the age of 15 claim to be in good health, while the OECD average is 68%. The National Audit Office has carried out an audit “Is promotion of child health ensured”, which shows that while a healthy diet is on the rise, there is a lack of attention towards development of work and rest habits and children’s daily physical activity is not ensured. There is also a lack of integration of child health promotion into general education. According to the auditors’ estimate, investment of 1 euro to child health promotion at an earlier age of 3-11 years would give a return of 1.3 euro in the future: this would reduce the rates of morbidity, thus saving the costs for treatment of Compulsory Health Insurance Fund and State Social Insurance Fund respectively, and would create higher added value.
