This month we look at Commitment 1.4 Health and Well-being. As well as being aware of the importance of healthy eating, the focus is also on giving attention to the wider aspects which contribute to children’s well-being


Rapid growth

Meeting a newborn baby often leads us to wonder at how small and perfect they are. I am always delighted by their tiny hands and feet and the changing expressions on their faces. However, if you are not in frequent contact with the baby, you might be amazed at how quickly they have grown by the next time you see them. This rapid growth adds impetus to the importance of our support and attention during these key times of development. Their genetic inheritance and biological drive benefit from both positive relationships and an enabling environment.
