Good health comes from many aspects of a child's environment. Which of the following strategies do you already address?
Back to Nature
Immerse your child in Nature, as it calms and revitalises their body/mind.
Funny and Happy
Having fun and feeling joy releases healing, feel-good endorphins.
Fulfil With Love
Feeling loved and connected, promotes overall wellbeing.
Limit! Visual media can be hyper-stimulating & neurologically disruptive.
Foster a non-toxic home, with filtered drinking water, natural cleaning products and low level lighting.
Give children a safe and welcoming platform to speak about their fears and failures, successes and joys.
SCHOOL NUTRITION SHOW
The Amazing Army Kid's Nutrition Show is an interactive and vibrant children's health workshop for Prep to Grade 2, based on a story designed and presented by author, Louise Elliott (also known to the children as Loopy Lu The Body Scientist). Missy Lulu™ uncovers an amazing discovery whilst investigating inside a human body: a battle of good against evil where Captain Immune™ and his Amazing Army™ (the Immune System) combat the Bad Bugs™ (germs and sickness). Of course, a sinister spy is sent out from the Bad Bugs™ camp: her name is Sneaky Sweetie™. She tempts us with sweets and treats (junk foods), which make the Amazing Army™ weak and tired (so invading Bad Bugs™ can make our bodies sick)! However, the hero, Major Energy™ delivers the winning weapon for the Amazing Army™: the super power of colourful fruit and vegetables.”
Children dress up as the characters, sing their anthems and feast on fruit and veggies.
Importantly, they take home a 5-Day Goal Chart to develop healthy eating habits, and once complete, receive a Major Energy Award.
