About Munch & Move
Munch & Move supports NSW Early Childhood Education and Care services to adopt health promoting practices. It is a NSW Health initiative that supports the healthy development of children birth to five years by promoting physical activity, healthy eating and reduced small screen time
(e.g. watching TV or DVDs, playing on computers and small hand-held games devices).
The initiative has a belief that establishing sound eating and activity habits from an early age gives children the best chance of leading a healthy life and maintaining a healthy weight.
