ActiveAte: Term 4

ActiveAte is a group designed to promote wellbeing through teaching parents how to support their child to explore food and increase physical activity. Parents come together to learn and share strategies to progress their child’s engagement in meals. Children will join in fun movement activities and learn how to explore food in a positive way.

Children have the opportunity to:

• Take part in fun movement games
• Explore foods based on sensory properties
• Socialise with other kids

Topics covered with parents include:

• Exploring ongoing opportunities for physical activity
• Mealtime myths
• Creating a positive mealtime routine
• How to support your child to explore food choices
• Trouble shooting barriers to eating a range of foods and participating in
physical activity
• The role of technology

This group will be hosted by two of our therapists. The content of the
group has been developed by Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists,
Speech Pathologists, Clinical Psychologists and a Dietitian.

When: Term 4, Monday afternoons
for 8 weeks (beginning 10th October 2022)
Time: 3.45-5pm
Where: Kids Are Kids! Bateman
Cost: Free

The program is made possible and has been subsidised for families by funding from the Helen Leech Endowment through Perpetual’s IMPACT Philanthropy Program.

Feedback from these sessions have been overwhelmingly positive. Parents have noted:

• Positive changes in mealtimes routines
• Increased confidence in supporting their child with mealtime difficulties
• Feeling supported and connected with other parents, through sharing their progress and journey each week.
• Children trying new foods at home and increased food range

“Many thanks to the friendly team at Kids Are Kids! who guided us through their fantastic ActiveAte program. Since attending I have been able to broaden my daughter’s eating range and increase her confidence at mealtimes. We now understand her needs better and can work as a family towards calmer meals!”
