Pressing ‘play’ on new healthy kids videos

NSLHD’s Population Health Promotion team officially recently launched a new video series.

The Small Bites for Big Steps videos were launched at Artarmon Kids Cottage with help from Dr Elisabeth Murphy, Senior Clinical Advisor for Child and Family Health, NSW Ministry of Health. 

Elisabeth set the scene by giving a fascinating overview of the importance of the First 2000 days of a child’s life and praised the videos for promoting early childhood development and the way they are delivered.

Joining in the celebrations was Amy Robertson from Little Zaks Academy Hornsby, whose centre and educators star in the videos and helped make them such a success. 

“Our team finds the videos to be a fantastic resource for our own education, as well as for inclusion in our newsletters for families,” Amy said.
“In fact, we now include a video in each of our newsletters to help parents and carers also support their kids development.”

Early Years Program Manager, Nicole Tate, was excited to see the resources now being used with such a positive response to them.

Although just officially launched, the videos have actually been available for about two months, attracting around 2500 website visitors and 300 educators completing the accompanying professional development

“We’ve also had a great response to the accompanying professional development package with 300 educators completing a course.”

The free videos cover a wide range of topics to support Early Childhood Educators, and families, including breastfeeding, healthy eating and physical activity.
