"Healthy eating and physical activity are vital for good health. Poor eating habits and inadequate levels of activity can contribute to lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, obesity and some cancers. In Australia there is a high number of children who are overweight and obese. To address this it is important children develop healthy eating and physical activity habits early in life."

It is on this basis that we here at W.O.S.H.C have used this framework, developed through the Heart Foundation, to structure our eating and physical activity for our children.

It structures our breakfast and afternoon tea menus which you can view here and also greatly contributes to our program in order to develop our physical activity activities.

 

The ESPS manual relates back to the "My Time, Our Place" framework, with a particular focus on Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world, and Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.
