len jeffrey goes for it

It was a great pleasure to present the Len Jeffrey Memorial Pre School in Belgrave South with the Kids – ‘Go for your life’ Award earlier this week. The celebration started with an afternoon tea of healthy snacks prepared by the children. Belinda Niezen, coordinator and Fiona (president) accepted the award on behalf of the Len Jeffrey Memorial Pre School.

The award, a first in the Shire of Yarra Ranges, is to recognise “Supporting the Kids – ‘Go for your life’ Program. The program is based on six key themes:
TAP into water every day
Plant FRUIT and VEG in your lunchbox
LIMIT ‘sometimes’ foods
Move, PLAY and GO
Turn OFF, switch to PLAY

Kids - ‘Go for your life’ is managed by Diabetes Australia Vic and The Cancer Council Victoria, and funded by the Victorian Government. Kids - ‘Go for your life’ encourages physical activity and healthy eating in children through primary schools and early childhood services through the Kids - ‘Go for your life’ Award Program.

I look forward to championing the Kids – Go for your life award to all the early childhood services in the shire. It is a great investment in our future and sets good habits in place from an early age.
