Eating a Healthy Diet

Healthy eating habits can boost brain health and increase the growth in your brain's cells.

A healthy diet may help kids cope with the stresses and challenges in life.

If your child struggles to try new foods, make pictures using food to make food more exciting and enticing.

Get your child involved in the cooking and making process too.

Could you try something new this week?

In school we use the Roar Score to discuss feelings with the children. This is a great way to gauge how your child feels on the score from

1-10.

1 = Really Angry

10 = Super Happy

We discuss with the children how we can move them up a stage at a time. 

This could be a great tool to use at home.

Wellbeing Journal

Sharing your emotions on paper is a great way to express how you feel. Why not try it now.
