Children spend a substantial amount of time in our early childhood setting so we aim to provide a lifestyle designed to promote an awareness of healthy eating habits. Establishing sound eating and activity habits from an early age gives children the best chance of leading a healthy life and maintaining a healthy weight.
Munch & Move is NSW Health initiative that supports the healthy development of children from birth to 5 years by promoting physical activity, healthy eating and reduced small screen time (e.g. watching TV or DVDs, playing on computers and small hand-held games devices). Early childhood is the ideal time for children to develop and practice healthy eating and physical activity habits; this includes learning a range of fundamental movement skills that will help children take part in and enjoy physical activity throughout their lives.
Additionally, our large outdoor area promotes the exercise and develoment of gross motor skills and provides children wth a daily dose of sunshine and vitamin D.
