Hampshire Healthy Heroes

Are you a Registered Early Years Provider in Hampshire?

Would you like to join us on a journey to help your children aged 3+ become Healthy Heroes?

Hampshire Healthy Heroes works with Early Years Settings supporting healthy starts for young children and increasing Emotional, Physical and Oral Health outcomes. Educating children in a fun and interactive way, so they understand the importance of self-care and have the knowledge to implement healthy habits with the support of their parents, carers and Early Years providers.

 Our Hampshire Healthy Heroes worskhop is designed to be delivered to Pre-School children by our Community Health Developement Workers within the Early Years Setting itself, lasting about half an hour.

Alternatively the Early Years Setting can choose to have the workshop delivered to their team of staff as a digital workshop.

Each setting will also be provided with a set of resources and a toolkit for continuing to promote Healthy Heroes after the workshop.

Aim of the Hampshire Healthy Heroes workshop:

To share interactive and creative activities for children to understand each of these health outcomes:

Oral Health

  • A short story about visiting the Dentist.
  • Activities will include giant size teeth and tooth brushing enabling the children to have a go at brushing the teeth with shaving foam and/or using laminated work-sheets to promote looking after their teeth.
  • What foods can harm children’s teeth, how to cut down on Sugar (Healthy and Unhealthy Food Plates).
  • Understanding how to look after our teeth.

Physical Health

  • Activities will include talking about how we stay active.
  • Obstacle races / Moving to Music.
  • 5 Minute Moves: Running on the spot, star-jumps, frog-jumps, bunny hops & kicks.
  • Lying down and being completely still for a minute.


  • Looking at and naming emotions.
  • Recognizing and managing different feelings, using sensory bottles.
  • Building Confidence and Self-Esteem.
  • Use our hand as a tool to breathe slowly.

Please make contact with your local Community Health Development Worker to book your Hampshire Healthy Heroes workshop.
