Welcome to the Munch & Move eLearning program training
Munch & Move is NSW Health initiative that supports the healthy development of children birth to 5 years attending NSW early childhood education and care services. The Munch & Move eLearning program training contains videos, interactive activities, reflective practice questions and a discussion forum which will provide you with the knowledge, skills and resources to embed healthy eating and physical activity into your service. The training is self-paced (on average it takes approximately 3 hours) and can be completed over multiple occasions.
Once you have completed training, you will receive a certificate of completion and your details will be provided to a Munch & Move Support Officer from your Local Health District. Your Support Officer will provide your service with program resources and ongoing support to implement Munch & Move in your service. For family day care, this support is provided at your service provider (previously scheme) level. Service providers must be trained in Munch & Move to receive this support.

Completing the Munch & Move eLearning program training will contribute 3 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 2.1.2, 6.2.2, 7.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
