Munch & Move is an NSW Health initiative that supports the healthy development of children from birth to five 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).
Munch & Move offers training and resources to educators working in NSW early childhood education and care services. The training program assists services to implement a fun, play-based approach to supporting healthy eating and physical activity habits in young children. The program also fits within the National Quality Framework and the Early Years Learning Framework.
For more Munch & Move information and loads of resources, go to NSW Health’s Healthy Kids website.
As an excellent additional local resource, the Central Coast Health Promotion Service has created a series of infographics to support key health messages. Early childhood services are encouraged to use them in their newsletters and other communications to families. You can access a selection of infographics here, or contact our project officer below to request other options.
