The Rural Northwest Health Community Health Team have developed some resources to help you and your child experience fun activities that provide the opportunity to develop their skills and try new things.

 

All activities have a downloadable instruction sheet underneath each activity.

We would love to see the things you come up with and would like it if you could email your finished creations to the  RNH Health Promotions team at healthpromotion@rnh.net.au

Creating a fruit and vegetable face drawing (Craft Activity)

 

Create a Butterfly (Craft activity)

Using fruits and vegetables in your home to make a face (Nutrition Activity)

It can take time for your child to learn to eat a variety of foods, with research showing it can take 10 or more times of offering a food to a child before they eat or like it. The aim of this activity is to encourage your child to explore fruit and vegetables through play, to promote them to eat a wider variety of fruit and vegetables.

Your child doesn’t have to eat the fruits and vegetables used in this activity. Touching the foods, holding them, smelling them, touching them to their lips, and tasting them on their tongue without swallowing them, are all part of learning to eat new foods. It is important they are able to do this in their own time without feeling pressured if they are not ready on this occasion.

Shape Jumping (Physical activity)

We hope you enjoy these activities with your children
