Munch & Move Munch & Move

Munch & Move is a NSW Health initiative supporting the healthy development of children from birth to five years by promoting physical activity, healthy eating and reduced screen time.

Eating well and being active are essential for healthy growth and development. By giving children the basic 'building blocks' for a healthy lifestyle at an early age we increase the likelihood they will continue these healthy habits throughout their lives.

Munch & Move offers training and resources to educators working in NSW early childhood education and care services. The training helps educators to implement a fun, play-based approach to supporting healthy eating and physical activity habits in young children. The Munch & Move program fits within the new National Quality Framework and the Early Years Learning Framework.

Key elements of the Munch & Move Program include:

  • Access to a free online training program
  • A comprehensive Munch & Move manual and resources
  • Ongoing support from Sydney Local Health District, including workshops and educational events
