Hi Emma, it was lovely to have the opportunity of talking with you last night about the innovative strategies your service is putting into place to promote HOPPEL (promotion healthy eating and physical activity). It is lovely to see all rooms in your service are working together to make positive changes in the daily program. I have seem a couple of services are bringing in a theromix to conduct cooking with children. As mentioned documenting these experiences in your visual reflection diary for parents to read also encourages these practices to transfer into the home environment.
Its great to see the younger children have the opportunity of practicing their self help skills and serve themselves as this supports Institute of Medicine (IOM) eating occasions recommendation in ECEC services ( USA based) as well as our NQS and EYLF principles and practices. We discussed this during training.
