About

Welcome!

The Children’s Health Blog is available to any class with pupils aged 4-11 years old. It has been created to encourage a global conversation between children, about health and wellbeing. We bring classes more than just information – our Health Champions will inspire you every day to make small, positive choices to improve your health and wellbeing – both for the body, and mind.

We believe children have a great opportunity to influence their own health and wellbeing. You may not be doing the weekly food shop, but you do have opportunities throughout the day to improve your health.

How you can get involved:

‘Daily Health Inspiration’ posts – Your teacher can share these with the class at the beginning of the day. These posts are fun, engaging and informative. We know teachers don’t have much time for additional activities in the curriculum, so these are quick and easy to access. They give teachers a source of inspiration to discuss health and wellbeing with their class thought the day. They run Monday – Friday, and are posted with their own hashtags:

#mondaymeals

#tuesdaytips

#wonderwednesday

#thoughtfulthursday

#fitnessfriday

We’d love you to get involved with comments on the posts, how they’ve inspired you, and other ideas you may have to stay healthy.

Champion Challenges – meet our Health Champions below! Captain Kinetic, Nutrition Ninja, Agent Lifestyle and Mindset Warrior will each set you a challenge over the course of two weeks. Their challenges will be based on their expert area of health – healthy movement, healthy eating, healthy habits and healthy thoughts.  As you start to use the Blog, you will learn more about the Health Champions.
