Move Well Eat Well promotes a healthier Tasmania in which children can enjoy healthy eating and physical activity every day. It contributes to a healthy lifestyle and to the prevention of a range of chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, some cancers and dental decay.
Mount Stuart Primary is a Move Well Eat Well school. A few examples of how we encourage a healthy school population is through the Daily Fitness program, daily morning fruit break, dedicated P.E and health lessons, and promoting healthy living via our newsletter.
