Abstract
Historically, Aboriginal people had a close connection with the land and the food it provided. Food that was taken from the natural world was honoured and respected. It was never wasted, always shared. People were active as part of their daily lives.
This booklet will help you learn how to help your child grow up in a healthy way. It will help families think about healthy food and being active. Most of the things you can do are low or no cost. Eating well and being active can be fun and budget friendly. Being healthy also means getting regular check-ups and learning about your body.
