President’s Report By Kate Cashman
Welcome to the May edition of the Apple for 2018. The Board has had a very productive few months – we have had traction with respect to our properties, securing leases and a sale (pending settlement)! We shall keep you updated on our progress with this and announce it all when it goes unconditional. We know this is a great step forward for CHAT and the money from the sale of the properties will help ensure that our programs and staff continue to be funded for the coming years. A huge thank you from all of us on the Board to those who have helped us with this outcome.
CHAT Board members have recently had the benefit of attending a Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania supported session of the Governance for Purpose workshop with Steve Bowman. This was held in both Launceston and Hobart and I am amazed by how interactive and interesting Steve made governance for NFPs to be. We all took away some amazing information and feel even more strategically aligned with CHAT’s vision, values and mission in the community. As a Board of Governance, we all take our strategic role very seriously and this training was a good opportunity for us to further our skills and in We are so pleased that the future of our flagship being of service to this organisation. program, Family Food Patch, has been assured for the next few years with funding that guarantees the work As always, if you have any questions about what the in the community can continue.

State Executive Officer’s Report By Liz Crane
What a busy (but fun!) time it has been here at CHAT. We are now into our second century of operating, and I am so proud to see how the organisations can keep evolving to stay relevant to the members we serve. While vision statements and tag lines might change, our philosophy remains the same - we are here to Support Tasmanian Families. Here is a quick run down of where we are at and what we have been up to. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email. Properties: We are continuing negotiations with the Government to finalise leases on the two properties in Moonah and Newstead, this will ensure both properties will remain as Child Health Clinics for the foreseeable future, even when sold, which we hope will be soon. UTAS: We are working with UTAS IT students to develop a family friendly application to make it easier for families to find a suitable location to meet when getting out and about. We are currently in the concept stage and hope to release the Hobart and surrounds version later this year - stay tuned! Thanks to everyone who completed our survey and let us know about your favourite family friendly cafes. This data will all be incorporated into the app and the user updated format means you will be able to share information about new places as you find them.
Tasmanian Bush Food to Plate: The TBFP project is run at the tagari lia Child and Family Centre in Bridgewater and aims to support healthy active lifestyles of families and their children and to introduce then to new food flavours, traditionally used by aboriginal people, by incorporating them into everyday, easy to prepare recipes. The project is going along well and participants are working together to create a cookbook to share.
Picnic and Play: A big thanks to the many many Hobart families who celebrated National Families Week with us at our Picnic and Play event on Salamanca Lawns. It was fantastic to work with our partners Playgroup Tas and City of Hobart to bring you this fun event. Our ‘Magic Chocolate Cake’ was a big hit with children and adults alike - we’ve included the recipe so you can try it at home (Thanks to our friends at the Tasmanian School Canteen Association for sharing). The aim of National Families Week is to celebrate the vital role that families play in Australian society. The theme 'Stronger families, stronger communities' highlights the importance of families to communities and that community wellbeing is enhanced by family wellbeing. National Families Week is a time to celebrate with your family, make contact with your extended family and friends, and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community. It is a time to celebrate the meaning of family and to make the most of family life. We look forward to celebrating with you again next year. Moving forward, we have some really exciting things coming up later in the year for CHAT, including a major, exciting, fundraising event we hope all families will attend! We are so very thankful for the great support we receive from our members and supporters and look forward to Supporting Tasmanian Families for the next 100 + years.

Family Food Patch By Emma Rowell, Program Manager
Fantastic news! We are so happy to tell you that we now have three years of secure funding for the Family Food Patch program! There are so many exciting projects that we are currently involved in developing and supporting and it’s really wonderful to see a future for them to become bigger, brighter and stronger. Our Kitchen ABC, 123 resource toolkit will be finished soon. Two of the recipes, middle eastern zucchini dip and tomato salsa, have been featured in the first pilot student film shoot of a partnership between ourselves, the Tasmanian School Canteen Association and Clarence City Council. The Rosny film students will be filming 10 of the veggie recipes (one off each card) in 10 different locations around Clarence – schools, community houses, aged care facilities etc. This first ‘draft’ features Risdon Vale Primary School and some grade 5 and 6 students. We look forward to seeing the first edit and sharing it with you very soon via our Facebook page. They will be short, 1 minute, ‘how to make’ clips.
Try the cauliflower dip on the next page and let us know what you think! Devonport Community House were the hosts of our most recent Family Food Educator training. Welcome to the Patch Juliet, Ann-Marie, Dean, Shelly, Natasha, Cassandra and Jodhi. Between them they cover a wide range of areas and networks across the North-West and already have cooking and information sessions planned with schools and community groups in the coming months. Pen and I will be heading up again to run a catch-up session in June. Another adventure just waiting to happen is our mobile community kitchen – a great partnership with the Tasmanian School Canteen Association again. The food truck will be visiting schools, events and communities across Tasmania from winter onwards. The final stage of the ‘fit out’ is happening…gas and plumbing, storage cupboards and lighting. We just need a name! We look forward to some inspiration from our Facebook poll. It’s also wonderful to see the Tasmanian Bush Food to Plate Project get started at tagari alia Child and Family Centre in Bridgewater. The project is being led by Family Food Educator and all round amazing woman Nicki Kastner, who will be running cooking and activity sessions weekly at the centre for families. The project aims to build knowledge and confidence in cooking with Tasmanian bush foods as part of every day recipes. It will be running till the end of 2018 and then we will be collating all the recipes into a book, capturing many of the beautiful stories from the community too and creating banners to showcase the ‘fruits’ of the project. This will then be a foundation for a touring exhibition through LINC’s around the State. Watch this space!

Hobart and Launceston Launceston Baby CHAT @Haven on Paterson, Wednesdays 10am to 12noon
Baby CHAT is on in the Haven most Wednesdays from 10am to 12noon. We have a different focus each week with information topics to support your parenting and family health. So far this year we have chatted about transitioning into childcare, changing sleep spaces for our little ones, parenting toddlers and understanding two year old tantrums.
The Haven on Paterson continues to gain popularity as a place for families to take a quiet break in the city. We have parenting facilities, comfy chairs, and toys, books and puzzles for babies to pre-schoolers. The Haven is a great place to meet up with friends or drop in to on Our guest speakers this year so far have included a tandem-feeding your way to and from the LINC. mum who shared her journey With the support of Uniting Tas feeding through pregnancy and staff, we continue to offer opening beyond, and who was very happy times of 9.30am to 12.30pm to answer all questions with great We have also had Monday to Friday, with our Baby humour!

Led by the lovely Darren, we learnt about first aid support for our kids across a huge range of topics. Darren is a highly experienced paramedic, first aid trainer, father and grandfather, and he skilfully delivered great information and answered our questions around the hustle and bustle of the babies and toddlers in the room. We were very lucky to again have the generosity of Darren following the success of these sessions in 2016.
Hobart Bringing Up Great Kids This year we are running a series of parenting courses at The Haven that were previously run as once-off workshops throughout the year. What a hit! Each week was really well attended with regulars and the occasional mum or dad popping in to take part. Parents were challenged to think about parenting messages passed on by their own parents, grandparents, friends, neighbours, strangers and the culture around us. We became purposeful about which messages we were going to keep and use and which we were going to discard as rubbish.
We learned about being responsive parents rather than reactive, learning mindfulness tools to help us take a step back and respond to our children in a way we would be Over the coming months in Baby proud of.

Next term (July) we’ll begin the p a re n t i n g p ro g r a m C i rc l e o f Security which will run over 8 weeks. Stay tuned to our Facebook page so that you can register. Starting Solids In May, a University student conducted a workshop for local families on how to start solids with their baby well, based on the latest evidence-based research. Our volunteers were thrilled with the number of families and their little ones enjoying The Haven and learning new parenting information to start the next phase on baby feeding with success. Council Works We’re so excited to learn how Hobart City Council will role out Phase 2 of their revitalisation of Collins Court. Over the next few months a ramp will replace the few stairs headed into the carpark beside St. Davids Cathedral. In addition, easy access to The Haven for local families will be available in the back of the building (just beyond where the arches are in The Haven). Knowing that families with young children will be using this space of Collins Court they intend to make the ramp area a place for little ones to play and parents to connect. We can't wait to see their initial illustrations for the plans.
Who can use The Haven?
We are ALWAYS accepting new volunteers to join our weekly roster. The commitment is for a term (3 months), two hours a week on the same day. You could either open (9:30am-11:30am) or close (10:30am-12:30pm). You’ll make new friends among the other volunteers and regular visitors on your chosen day. Many parents who have newly relocated to Hobart find that this has been the best way to connect to the local community and form lasting friendships. Did we mention that your little ones get to come and play, too?!
All families are welcome at The Haven: mums, dads, bubs and kids, grandparents, carers, aunties, and uncles. Entry is $2 per family. FREE for Child Health Association Tasmania members.
But parents with young children are not the only ones invited to volunteer! Stay-at-home or work-athome parents with kids in school can give back to the community by giving of their time weekly to provide this welcoming space in Hobart’s CBD for young families. Yo u r e m e m b e r h o w i t w a s manoeuvring through the city with a pram and a toddler. Grandparents also make great volunteers as many have the time to give and the arms to hold wee babies while mum or dad make themselves a cuppa.
Opening Hours: Monday - Friday, 9:30am-12:30pm Location: Hobart: 121 Macquarie St, Hobart (down the alley off Macquarie St. behind St. Davids Cathedral office building) Launceston: 34 Paterson Street – opposite the Birchalls carpark Contact: Hobart: Bex Gowen, email@example.com Launceston: Susannah Koch, firstname.lastname@example.org

The Sun Comes Up Again Tomorrow By Sonja Preston
I remember my mother talking to me as a child, about disagreements within the family – How sometimes my sisters and I would argue about something or other, and one of us would end up saying (like many 7 or 9 year olds): ‘I’m not talking to you ever, ever again’! The ‘injured’ one would be lamenting to Mum about how mean or unfair our sister was, and after she’d soothed us, she would then say: “The sun comes up again tomorrow” – meaning that tomorrow was a new day, a fresh beginning. When I was older, she talked about how she never went to bed without saying: “I love you to my Dad” – even if they’d had a disagreement – she refused to take the emotion of anger or hurt to sleep. I was reminded of this last week, when I went to a Joan Baez concert – a folk singer from the 60 -70’s who was performing in Hobart. One of the first songs she performed had a line it it which resonated for me…. it was: Every new day we have is another chance to get it right”. Now it could be many things… your relationship, an assignment you’ve been working on, or a handyman job you’ve been struggling with. I really like these sentiments as it’s a reminder that indeed the ‘sun does come up again tomorrow’, that yesterdays situation is gone and today is a new opportunity to move forward, to get it right. This also has relevance to parenting and the relationships within our families…. It’s important for us to move forwards from yesterday’s stresses or woes; that we model that to our children; and that we teach them the process too.
when your toddlers have spent the day squabbling, and the dog has barked too many times. These are the days which really test us as parents, where we get to see what’s really inside of us…. do we take a breath, calm down and deal with things one at a time, or do we explode, taking it out verbally on the children, the dog or the delivery guy who happens to turn up?
