Healthy habits in fo­cus

Narrogin Observer - - Observer News - Nita Ack­land

The Nar­ro­gin Re­gional Child Care Cen­tre held a morn­ing tea last week to of­fi­cially open their Healthy Eat­ing and Well­be­ing Learn­ing Cen­tre or Well­ness Room.

The room has an oven, cook­ing equip­ment, some stor­age and yoga mats, and was a Com­mu­nity Chest Pro­ject spon­sored by the Shire of Nar­ro­gin.

Fam­i­lies, the Shire of Nar­ro­gin and the lo­cal com­mu­nity were in­vited to join the chil­dren and ed­u­ca­tors for healthy food pre­pared by the chil­dren.

Quiches and fruit ke­babs were en­joyed by all and the chil­dren se­lected from the rain­bow of fruits to make their own ke­bab.

The cen­tre would like to thank Mr Cook and Mr Lu­dovico from the Shire of Nar­ro­gin, and fam­i­lies who were able to at­tend the morn­ing tea.

The chil­dren have been en­joy­ing the cook­ing ex­pe­ri­ences and yoga.

These ex­pe­ri­ences have pro­vided valu­able learn­ing es­pe­cially in lit­er­acy, numer­acy, sci­ence, so­cial and life skills.

The cen­tre plans to con­tinue to pro­mote other habits needed for well­be­ing, like eat­ing a rain­bow of fruits and veg­eta­bles ev­ery day, grow­ing food to eat and learn­ing about where food comes from.

Staff at Nar­ro­gin Re­gional Child Care Cen­tre help chil­dren make fruit ke­babs at the open­ing of their Healthy Eat­ing and Well­be­ing Learn­ing Cen­tre.
