Sport NZ is working with the Ministries of Health and Education to deliver Healthy Active Learning.

As part of the 2019 Wellbeing Budget, the Government is investing $47.6 million over four years on a new initiative called Heathy Active Learning. It’s all about supporting schools, kura and early learning settings to improve child and youth wellbeing through healthy eating and drinking, and quality physical activity.

Healthy Active Learning is a joint initiative from the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Sport New Zealand. It will provide all schools and early learning settings with new resources ranging from new guidelines to health promotion staff and physical activity advisors.
