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.
Hampshire Healthy Heroes
was originally designed to be delivered to preschool children by our Community Health Development Workers within the Early Years Settings itself, lasting half an hour.
However due to the current Covid-19 situation and limits on physical interaction, our Community Health Development Workers now deliver the workshop digitally directly to Early Years Providers, enabling Providers to then run the workshop themselves for children within their own setting.
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:
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.
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.
