Transition Resource Project (HEAL)
Healthy children are able to learn better at school and have the energy to explore outside the classroom too. To help the families across Hume and Whittlesea, DPV Health developed a series of short educational videos to give families practical, evidence-based tips on a range of health topics.
These videos feature local families and were developed in partnership with local health care professionals and educational leaders to ensure the content is evidence-based and relevant to the families.
To ensure the videos are accessible to a large number of the families, they are available to watch in English, Arabic and Punjabi languages.
The videos cover the following health topics:
- Healthy Eating
- Physical Activity
- Healthy Behaviours
Support material has been developed to help consolidate the healthy behaviours at home. These information handouts will help families apply the key messages from the videos in their daily routines.
