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 and reflective practice questions 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.

PLEASE NOTE: On 30th November 2020, the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) announced that all accredited Professional Development endorsements have been cancelled following an internal review. NSW Health will work to re-submit for endorsement of the Munch & Move eLearning Program Training once applications open in 2021.
For eLearning participants maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation, who complete the Training from 1st December 2020 to 5th February 2021, 3 hours of professional development will be added to educator eTAMS accounts. While these 3 hours will not be recorded as NESA Registered PD, they will still count towards maintenance requirements. We will provide further updates in the coming months, but please continue to include your Teacher Accreditation number in your account if you are working towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW. In the meantime, please refer to the NESA website for more details: https://educationstandards.nsw.edu.au/wps/portal/nesa/teacher-accreditation/professional-development/pd-update.
