Resources for Playgroups and Parents/Carers

It’s important for children and parents/carers to learn about healthy eating and active play to support children’s development. Recommendations and resources for parents/carers and playgroups, including supported playgroups, have been developed by NSW Health. The resources promote and encourage children’s healthy eating, physical activity, reduced small screen recreation time and oral health.

Playgroups, including supported playgroups, can provide engaging, educational and fun healthy eating and active play activities at the group session and also encourage carers/families to practice healthy eating and active play at home.

This page has links to guidelines, information and fun activities for parents/carers and playgroups, who want to support children to eat healthy food and participate in active play.

These resources are also suitable for other groups where parents/carers and young children attend together.
