Munch & Move Staff Development Kit

The Munch & Move Staff Development Kit has been designed to support family day care service providers and early childhood education and care (ECEC) educators trained in the Munch & Move program with a practical, user-friendly tool to upskill all staff at their ECEC service in the Munch & Move program.

Upskilling all ECEC service staff and family day care educators in the Munch & Move program will ensure Munch & Move is embedded into the service’s everyday practices and program. This will ensure a ‘whole of service’ approach in the responsibility of promoting healthy eating and physical activity messages to the children attending the service and their families.

The Munch & Move Staff Development Kit consists of 7 training modules (Module 1: Program Overview, plus 6 key message modules). It is important that you start with Module 1: Program Overview as this will ensure your colleagues understand what the Munch & Move program is and why we need to embed Munch & Move in NSW ECEC services. You can then select any of the key message modules in the order that best meets the Munch & Move training needs of your service.

A user guide has been developed to explain how to use the Munch & Move Staff Development Kit.
