The paper, starting with a basic theoretical introduction and the presentation of the results of the first edition of the three-year project named SBAM! Sport, Wellness, Food, Mobility at School in Apulia, focuses the attention on its possible didactics perspectives. The longitudinal research here presented, which had as educational aims the promotion of appropriate eating habits and active lifestyles, highlighted the need to re-think learning-teaching contexts too, clearing them from a too parcelled certain way of understanding knowledge. If this experience has allowed us to better understand some criticalities about the quality and the quantity of physical education at school, but not only, is then necessary to foster integrated and multicomponent didactics approaches that urge individuals to think themselves as systemic corporeality. The aim is an adequate promotion of proactive behaviours and preventive habits that sustain a more aware healthy growth that will accompany the subject for the lifetime.
