Celebrating healthy hearts
For a childcare centre in Elsdon, Valentine’s Day was not about love, but about healthy hearts.
Faavae Mautu Educare held a Wear Red for Healthy Hearts Day on Friday to encourage children and parents to think about their health.
The children and staff members dressed in red, and red food was on the menu.
Centre manager Tasi Pereira said it was important to teach the children about healthy eating young.
‘‘They will be much happier if they are healthy,’’ she said.
The event was held in conjunction with the Heart Foundation.
