Promoting healthy weight in pre-school children modules

Healthy way logo

This online resource consists of 8 modules and a resource bank.

We recommend you complete the following two modules first, since their content underpins the modules that follow:

  1. Communicating with parents about child weight
  2. Behaviour change techniques

The order that you complete the remaining modules is up to you.

Each module contains a number of interactive activities and videos, followed by a short multiple-choice quiz to help you evaluate your learning.  

The modules will take between 45 and 90 minutes to work through (some modules are longer than others).  You can see a time estimate for each module by hovering on the pictures below.

Navigating the site

The modules are designed to be as easy to follow as possible. Click on a module icon to start that module. The different sections within the module are displayed on the module home page. If you choose the first section (1) you will then be guided through the remaining sections by clicking on the right hand side image at the bottom of each page. Throughout the module text you will see drop down boxes with a ‘?’ icon at the beginning. Click on these boxes for more information. Key academic references are provided in drop down boxes at the end of each page. These are included for further information should you be interested.

The Navigation bar on the left hand side of the page contains each module (in the larger text) and the sections of the module (in the smaller text). Clicking on these will take you directly to the module/module section.
