 Healthy Active Learning

​                Children biking

It’s all about supporting schools, kura and early learning settings to improve child and youth wellbeing through healthy eating and drinking, and quality physical activity.
Healthy Active Learning is a joint initiative from the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Sport New Zealand. It aims to provide schools, kura and early learning settings with new resources ranging from new guidelines to health promotion staff and physical activity advisors.
Public Health offers:
• Practical support for all decile 1- 4 schools to assist them to create healthier food environments
• Support for schools to develop, implement and maintain healthy food and water only policies. This includes providing our water-only school toolkit.
Healthy Active Learning Toolkits:
These toolkits provide a broad overview of steps that can be taken to support and promote positive food and drink environments in your School, Kura, or Early Childhood Education (ECE) setting. The toolkits are available in English and Te Reo Māori.
