What is EatPlayThrive?
It is a preventative program that assists parents and carers of children aged 1-12 years in creating a healthier lifestyle for their family. The program consists of three 2-2.5 hour workshops conducted over a three week period.
- Identifying the (unhealthy) triggers – We look at the role advertising and media play in influencing our eating habits.
- Stretching your food dollar further – This session focuses on how to create healthy meals on a budget and learning to read food labels to identify healthier options.
- Getting the family off the couch – We discuss the benefits of exercise for the whole family. We also discuss the importance of role models, managing meal time conflict, as well as discuss how to limit screen time and becoming more active as a family.
All topics include interactive activities and informal discussion to develop understanding. The final workshop will conclude with parents cooking a healthy meal together, using skills learned over the program’s duration.
