A number of Munch & Move training options are available to Educators and Cooks. This training strengthens the knowledge and skills to implement healthy eating and physical activity practices within services.
The Munch & Move program recommends at least 50% of the Educators in each Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) service complete either the Munch & Move e-Learning Program or Staff Development Kit.
The Munch & Move e-Learning program is a free, self-paced online training program designed for Educators. If you have at least one person who has completed the Munch & Move e-Learning Program at your service you will gain access to a suite of free resources, menu and policy reviews, and tailored support from a local Health Promotion Officer.
Your service can gain access to the Munch & Move Staff Development Kit, after one of your staff members' completes the Munch & Move e-Learning Program.
The Munch & Move Staff Development Kit can be used to train multiple staff members at once.
