Welcome to healthy families healthy children, a healthy new website for a the new year for families and children in Sydney Local Health District.
Here we speak to the Chief Executive about why healthy families and healthy children are so important to her.
The aim, according to Sydney Local Health District Chief Executive, Dr Teresa Anderson, is to link families living in the District (and beyond) with the health services and resources that are available to them in a user friendly, helpful space.
“We all try to do the best we can for our families and our children – whether it is trying to help our children in their development, or eating right or being active,” Dr Anderson says.
“We have so many leading experts and access to so much trusted information on how to live healthy lives, that we wanted to try to help people by having one place where we can link our community to all of our services for families and children.”
“I spent Saturday morning with my 2 year old nephew Arthur enjoying the lovely sunny weather outside. We spent time feeding strawberry tops to the worms in the worm farm and feeding worm juice to the plants, doing chalk drawings, climbing up high on the climbing frame in the park and picking flowers.”
