The Healthy Families Healthy Children team marked the beginning of spring on Sunday, September 10, with thousands of families and their furry friends at the Yaralla Festival on the grounds of the beautiful Yaralla Estate in Concord.
There was fun for all, with the team thrilled to share ideas with the community about what makes us healthy.
While the kids were entertained in the craft corner or chasing bubbles with our Child and Family Health Nurses, mums and dads had the chance to chat with our speech pathologists about choosing the right book for their child’s age.
We were amazed to see how much sugar is in many popular foods and drinks – thankfully, our dietician Kalliope was on hand with healthy alternatives.
And children had the chance to put their balancing skills and coordination to the test, under the expert watch of our physiotherapists.
It was a great day combining learning and play!
