Child Care News for Parents & Carers
February 14, 2018
Welcome, this week ideas to help your child enjoy their lunch at pre-school a little bit more and we look at a new survey on mental health in young children.
How to make lunch easy for kids to enjoy
When it comes to cling-wrapped sandwiches and un-cut oranges, the struggle is real for young children. In fact, some early primary school kids are having so much trouble accessing their food, they're skipping lunch out of frustration.

To tackle this problem, a Brisbane child care centre is teaching its three- and four-year-olds the art of independent eating. With lessons in fruit-peeling, yoghurt-opening and sandwich un-wrapping, Timber Tots Child Care is helping pre-schoolers to help themselves – and prepare for life at big school.
Why it's important to think about your child's mental health
Most parents can spot a gunky eye or a grazed knee from a mile off, but when it comes to a youngster's mental health, it seems that many mums and dads are in the dark.

In fact, according to the latest Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) National Child Health Poll, only 35 per cent of parents are confident that they could recognise the signs of a mental health problem in their child.

That leaves two-thirds of Australian parents doubting their ability to identify or respond to the signs of mental health issues.
