A Whole of Service Approach

whole of service approach


Management, educators and families can come together to promote healthy eating and physical activity at a service. A ‘whole of service’ approach requires coordinated action across all 4 areas of Munch & Move - Munch, Move, Monitor and Making It Happen.

This site provides a variety of ideas and resources you can use to put in place Munch & Move at your service. Use these resources and ideas as well as help from your Support Officer to embed healthy practices at your service.
