Save the date! Happy Healthy Tasty: A guide to feeding Tassie kids aged 0-5 LAUNCH On the 5th and 12th of February the FIAAI Healthy Lifestyle team officially launched their new resource Happy Healthy Tasty which is an information booklet about food nutrition for kids aged 0-5 years old. The focus of the project has been to take existing information and resources and rework them to be more reflective of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community. Many consultation meetings with various members of the TAHRG and meetings with many of the TAHRG " Mums and Bubs" groups to get feedback from community members about what they'd like to see in a nutrition guide. Professional photos for the booklet were taken at SETAC and include photos of many happy babies eating yummy healthy food. The booklet covers everything from breastfeed-ing to introducing first foods, the nutritional needs of toddlers, how to deal with fussy eaters, allergy advice and much more. SETAC Sport and Boxing Program The Healthy Lifestyle Program in conjunction with SETAC organized a boxing and sport program to be run at Primary Health Care & Well-being Centre at Cygnet, the program consisted of two groups going for 3 days each. The first group went from Tuesday 21st to Thursday 23rd of January and the second group on the following week going from 27th to 29th. Each day 2 hours was spent with each group, spending 1 hour teaching boxing and the other hour playing games such as cricket, dodge ball, volley ball, soccer, capture the flag and more. Also spent time talking to the kids about how important it is to keep an active lifestyle. On the final day of the program both groups from the first and second week met at Randal's Bay just south of Cygnet for a beach day and a BBQ. RECENT & UPCOMING PROGRAMS. Save the date! Garden to Plate FIAAI healthy lifestyle team will work in partnership with Ravenswood Community Centre and Second Bite to offer the "Garden to plate" program which would have 2 main components, the first is a community vegetable and bush tucker garden and the second is using fresh seasonal local produce from the gardens and Second Bite to cook healthy, nutritious meals on a budget. Food insecurity has been identified as a major contributor to Aboriginal and Torres Strait peo-ple's health, these programs will help to give the students the tools, skills and food to make wis-er food choices. There would be 2 different classes which would cater to different parts of the community. During the year photos/recipes and stories will be collated together to create a booklet documenting this learning journey. At the completion of the project, the Healthy Lifestyle Program should have developed a solid partnership with Ravenswood Community Centre/ Second Bite, and be better recognized in Ravenswood Aboriginal community as well as the wider Launceston Aboriginal community.

National Children's Dental Health Month National Children's Dental Health Month is to raise awareness about the need for good oral health for our children. Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children. The good news is that it is preventable by preforming safe and effective preventive measures that can protect teeth.

In addition to a full range of vitamins and minerals, a child's diet should include plenty of calcium, phosphorous, and proper levels of fluoride.
