Bouncing with Health parties are a way of bringing health information (resources and practioners) to families with young and early years children in a relaxed and enjoyable session with songs, rhymes and physical activities.
At the first trial session at Queen’s Park Library we had:
- healthy food samples as prizes in the Duck Duck game – this was run by Mytimeactive who are promoting their Boost programmes for new mothers and healthy eating for toddlers
- information from the Kickstart Team, who run healthy eating workshops for parents and children
- advice from the Oral and Dental Health Team, who brought big models of teeth for the children to brush! They also advised parents on visiting the dentist as early as possible
- songs from the Speech and Language therapist who spoke to parents about ways about interactive reading with their child.
We are putting more parties in the diary for the Easter holidays, summer half term break and over the summer too – keep an eye on the Health Events page for more information, and do come along and join in!
