We can help make western Sydney a healthy place.
We want to support families and children to have healthy lifestyles. Healthy kids have a much better chance of growing into healthy adults.
What do we know?
We know that our kids aren't eating enough veggies, getting too much screen time and are eating too much sugary foods and drinks.
- What do we do?
The Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) Health Promotion Team takes evidence-based programs into schools, early childhood and the community.
We want to create healthy children from birth to teenagers. We focus on 3 key areas: healthy eating, physical activity and less time on screens.
