Healthy Active Learning
Healthy Active Learning is a new Wellbeing Budget initiative that will promote and improve healthy eating and physical activity in schools, kura and early learning services across Aotearoa.
As part of this joint Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Sport New Zealand initiative - a new investment of $47.6 million over four years - schools, kura and early learning services will be supported through new curriculum resources and a new health
promotion workforce. Many primary and intermediate schools will also benefit from the work of physical activity advisors.
It’s based on evidence showing children’s nutrition and physical activity are linked to both academic achievement and improved physical and mental health.
Research shows that only seven per cent of young people aged 5 to 18 are meeting the New Zealand guidelines for physical activity through sport, exercise and active recreation.
