7 Summary of Session 5

There are many global initiatives aimed at supporting and promoting the health of children. However, there are differences in how individual countries address children’s health. Many countries address children’s health through curriculum in pre-school education and care settings and also in schools.

Education settings are ideally placed to provide an environment that promotes the health of babies and children. However, children’s health is not only the responsibility of practitioners in education settings, but there is also a need for societal changes that support policies aimed at supporting children’s health.
