Industry Placement Presentation - Melanie Wassell
Remember what it was like to be this young?
For the next minute or two you will need to put your mind back to that time.
Scenario: You have been very busy running around, playing with your friends or siblings in the garden. Now it is snack time and you are starving. You are given a few options of what you might eat. Remembering you are this big

Discovery Coast Community Health – Fruit and Vegetable Theme Day for Under 5’s
Health education strategies are planned learning experiences that provide skills and knowledge on health matters to individuals or groups in a educational setting such as a class, seminar, workshop or course (McKenzie, Neiger & Thackeray 2009). They provide the targeted population with a knowledge and understanding on a particular health topic (McKenzie, Neiger & Thackeray 2009).
In terms of my project, health education will be provided to both the children and parents of Agnes Water Childcare Centre via various activities and games based on fruit and vegetable consumption. I plan for further information to be provided to parents on nutritional eating for their family in a take home pack.
As I will be working with young children it is a requirement that I hold a working with children blue card, which I already have.
