Early start to healthy eating CHILDREN at Capel Sounds educational child care centre and kinder are getting a head start to live a healthy life. The 150 children are learning the benefits of healthy eating and oral health, physical activity, mental health and wellbeing, sun protection, safe environments and the evils of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs. This comes as the centre, at Tootgarook, is recognised for its health and wellbeing efforts in Cancer Council Victoria’s Achievement Program – one of only a few state-wide to receive the accolade. “We know that helping children establish healthy habits sets the foundation for their future health, development and wellbeing,” the Cancer

Council’s Tope Adepoyibi said. “Capel Sounds can be proud of achieving all six health areas and knowing that it is helping to embed lifelong healthy habits for the next generation.” The children grow and harvest vegetables from three gardens. They also enjoy being little chefs with cooking demonstrations. Parent Catherine Glover said: “As a parent you want to give your child the best start in life. It’s a delight to see the photos and to read about the fun, healthy activities the children have been involved in. “‘Persistent Pete’, the classroom puppet, is always a big hit and it’s wonderful to know they’re learning important virtues, such as patience,

kindness and resilience, in a fun and engaging way. My daughter also really enjoys the yoga and meditation sessions that provide a ‘brain break’ during a busy day at the service.” Service director Wendy Stoffels said: “It’s been great to see everyone enthusiastic about leading healthier lifestyles with a greater health awareness.” More children are riding or walking to kinder and having conversations about healthy eating and being sun smart. “We’re looking forward to bringing a sustainability lens to our health and wellbeing initiatives with the new climate and health pathway,” she said.
