The benefits of Healthy Tots
Research tells us that good health habits developed in early years are likely to continue into adulthood.
The Leicestershire Healthy Tots Programme will help young children to:
- Make healthier choices
- Adopt healthier behaviours
- Develop positive attitudes
- Develop knowledge and understanding of healthy lifestyles
- Express themselves and know that their views will be acted upon.
The Leicestershire Healthy Tots parents leaflet should help explain the programme, and aims to encourage you to play a part in making sure these first years really are the best of your child's life.
We know that healthy children become healthy adults and the Leicestershire Healthy Tots Programme aims to help children achieve their full potential, but we can only do to with your help. Please encourage your children to talk to you about all aspects of their nursery, preschool or childminder and support them with this programme.
We all want our children to be happy, healthy and to enjoy their childhood – let's work together to create happy memories and a bright future for them.
