Healthy Celebrations

If you are looking for party ideas for children that are healthy and appropriate for different ethnic groups then look no further.

The NZ Heart Foundation have done it again producing a really fantastic resource!

Healthy celebrations was designed for use in early childhood centres to encourage teachers and parents to think of ways that friends and family can celebrate birthdays and festivals without sugar laden cakes and fatty savouries.

Although it was designed for children I can imagine many of these ideas being taken up by adults celebrating their birthdays and special events in workplace cafeterias

Activity is also the name of the game with suggestions of how to bring exercise into the party scene.

Healthy Celebrations offers up not only healthy recipes and ways to have fun but also respects the needs of different ethnic groups

It succeeds in taking ‘party’s’ in a totally new direction and ensuring many more in the future for those lucky enough to attend.
