On November 29, 2004 , LazyTown was recognized by the Natural Medicine Association of Reykjavík for the year 2004 for its preventive work in the interest of children. Björg Stefánsdóttir from the Naturopathic Medicine Society says it is particularly well-deserved, as it urges children to take good care of their health, eat healthy food and exercise.
“It also teaches children how important positive interpersonal relationships are in life and directs them in a clear and constructive way that they need to be responsible for their own health” she says and has no doubt that in this way LazyTown helps many parents raising their children.
It is the policy of the Natural Medicine Association to support those who encourage young and old to a better life. In recent years, it has honored various people for their work in this way, including Ástu Erlingsdóttir, a herbalist, and Braudhúsið in Grímsbær, which produces special healthy bread.
Magnús Scheving and Ragnheiður Pétursdóttir Melsted accepted the recognition from the Natural Medicine Association on behalf of LazyTown.
