Under fives just want to have fun. We offer a range of programs and resources to help educators make active, healthy fun a habit, and support mums, dads and carers with skills and networks that make nutritious food and plenty of exercise part of everyday life.
Munch & Move (Centre based)
Munch & Move helps early childhood educators and carers encourage healthy eating and physical activity in children from birth to five years through a fun, play-based approach. Children learn movement skills and healthy eating patterns that reduce the likelihood they’ll become overweight or obese, and set them up for a healthy, happy life.
- Munch & Move (Family Day Care)
Munch & Move is already available through 120 family day care providers in Western Sydney. Why not join us? As a Munch & Move service, you will have a support officer that will assist you in implementing Munch and Move in your services and provide resources and training.
Out of School Hours Care (OOSH)
For children who attend before and after school care, there is a great opportunity to positively shape healthy behaviours. Our program aims to support OOSH services provide healthy foods, increase physical activity and decrease small screen recreation.
- Supported Playgroups
Healthy eating and active play are important for children’s development. Recommendations and resources for parents/carers and playgroups, including supported playgroups, have been developed by NSW Health. The resources promote and encourage children’s healthy eating, physical activity, reduced small screen recreation time and oral health. Playgroups can provide engaging, educational and fun healthy eating and active play activities at the group session and also encourage carers/families to practice healthy eating and active play at home.
