ing Kiwi kids healthy habits.
The fifth year of the health and well-being programme starts today and takes Kiwi tamariki on a virtual trip around the globe, instilling healthy habits along the way like moving their bodies, eating extra fruit and vegetables, drinking more water, getting a good night's
sleep and reducing leisure time spent on screens. Kim Harvey, founder of the Young and
Healthy Charitable Trust and Virtual Adventure said each year provided incredible results."Teachers, parents and the kids themselves tell us they have more energy,
can focus better in class and feel better, which is all the more important as we head to the busy end-of-year sprint.
