Early Years providers - resources for local supporters

If you work in an Early Years setting Change4Life can help you promote healthier lifestyles to toddlers and pre-school children and their families. It's really important that this age group has healthy habits right from the start. If you're a childminder or work in a children's centre or nursery this section has resources just for you.

The resources below are for children aged 2-5. 

Bulk orders of some resources are available from the DH Orderline - just quote the smart number reference.
