Out of School Hours Care
Our Population Health team supports Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) services (sometimes known as OOSH or OOSCA services) to promote healthy eating and physical activity to children and their families. Download the manual or email the Population Health team to discuss how we can support your service.
Resources tailored to your sector
The Eat Smart Play Smart Manual supports OSHC directors and educators to promote healthy eating and physical activity, as part of developing a curriculum that enhances children’s learning and development and was provided to all OSHC services in Southern NSW Local Health District in 2018.
Eat Smart Play Smart has recently been revised by the Heart Foundation NSW Division, NSW Office of Preventive Health and Network of Community Activities to reflect the current Australian Dietary Guidelines, the Australian Physical Activity & Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines for Children and the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education.
