Heart Week Background

Two out of three Australian families are affected by heart disease. During Heart Week 2008, the Heart Foundation is urging parents and carers to get active with their children. Regular physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Making physical activity a priority and encouraging good habits in children from an early age is important and can help them to develop the skills they need to continue being active throughout their lives. Good food habits and daily physical activity – if your child has these, they’re well on the way to a healthy life. The Healthy Kids website show you how to do it, with great ways to get your kids moving, shopping tips and meal ideas for parents, resources for teachers, publications and guidelines, school and community-based projects and links to lots of other useful websites.
