As an early childhood service you don't have to do it alone when embedding these values into your programs. There are plenty of organisations that can help you build a healthy eating and oral health culture into all areas of your early childhood service. Looking for inspiration? Well Matron Swinton Child Care Centre in Warrnambool did just that!
