Move Well Eat Well is working to promote healthy eating and physical activity as a normal and positive part of every child's day.

It is an initiative of the Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Service (see About Us) based on extensive and current national and international research.

 The Move Well Eat Well approach works with the whole early childhood service or primary school community, creating and reinforcing an environment where healthy choices are made easier for children. The aim is to help children aged 0-12 develop healthy habits for life and provide opportunities for optimal learning and development.

While many children enjoy a healthy lifestyle, there are a significant number of Tasmanian children who are missing out on the benefits of healthy eating and physical activity. Move Well Eat Well has been adapted for Tasmanian early childhood education and care services, in particular long day care, family day care and kindergartens.

This website is a resource for early childhood services and primary schools that are taking an organised approach using the key Move Well Eat Well messages  

Currently Move Well Eat Well Member early childhood services and schools are promoting healthy eating and physical activity to over 36,000 Tasmanian children and their families.
