As the temperatures begin to rise our littlies sometimes become quite irritable. The fastest way to pop a smile on their faces is to offer them some soothing water play. The added benefits are that water play can be indoors and outdoors, is a unique activity for children because it is always available, open-ended, and provides opportunities for extended learning.
Water play is an enjoyable and calming activity where children can play and learn alone or alongside others. Children can participate at any level with no expected end result or product.
Each year National Nutrition Week raises awareness of the role of food on our health, and supports the community to enjoy healthy eating.
This year, Nutrition Australia is encouraging all Australians to take the ‘National Nutrition Week’ challenge by preparing healthy meals every day for seven days, and eat to the Australian Dietary Guidelines. October is when this celebration of nutrition occurs each year. It is a wonderful time for parents to give extra attention to their families’ nutrition and a fabulous opportunity to focus on children’s meals and snacks offered daily.
