Welcome, tough new rules mean from January 2018 NSW parents will not be able to use conscientious objection as a reason for not vaccinating their children if they want to access early childhood education and care services. Also, an alarming new study shows most families don’t follow lifestyle guidelines on eating and activity levels.
Tougher vaccination rules for NSW early childhood services
From January next year NSW parents who refuse to vaccinate their children will no longer be allowed to enrol them in early childhood education and care services after the NSW government scrapped the "conscientious objector" option.

The NSW Minister for Health Brad Hazzard said the new rules would reduce the spread of contagious diseases such as whooping cough and meningococcal in early childhood settings.
Obesity prevention
guidelines being ignored
In more bad news about the declining health of preschool aged children a new study has shown that only one child in 400 adhered to recommended obesity prevention guidelines over the course of a day at home and in their early childhood service.

The study, conducted by the Cininnatti Children's Hospital Medical Centre, evaluated the children across a normal day and found that most children were not receiving the recommended amount of healthy food and physical activity as prescribed by the 5-2-1-0 Guidelines.
