Inactive kids… could it be about more than screen time delirium?

In 2014, when the inaugural Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Young People was released, Australian kids scored an alarming D- in the area of Sedentary Behaviour. The report indicated that over two thirds of Aussie kids were engaging in recreational screen use for more than 2 hours a day. In fact, the average Australian young person was found to be spending about four hours a day in front of a screen of some sort. A typical home...

Pilates for Kids

As an Aunty to several beautiful nieces and nephews, I’m always looking for new activities to do to keep them all fit, healthy and happy. Pilates is a great activity for kids. It improves flexibility, strength, balance and posture, assists to maintain an ideal bodyweight, assists with injury rehabilitation, encourages participation in regular exercise, and improves self esteem among many other benefits. Whether your child is the next Olympian...

Looking after your child’s teeth

Looking after your child’s teeth We are pretty pedantic about dental health in our family, but even so, I still dread going to the dentist! For some reason, despite all my previous years of check ups without a single filling, I still worry that the dentist will tell me I need my jaw broken, that my front teeth need to come out, or something equally horrendous! Of course this doesn’t happen, but I did feel similarly anxious taking my...

What does your footprint look like?

We welcome Cathy, who is a physiotherapist at Smart Health Training and Services. This is a great little piece for those of you who have some concerns about your child’s feet. Thanks Cathy!

Matilda Bookshop in Stirling

Matilda’s kids nook Loving the kids area Some gorgeous children’s books As an avid reader myself as a kid, Matilda bookshop in Stirling is the kind of place I loved as a child and still love as an adult. It’s obvious from the moment you walk into Matilda’s, this is not your standard chain super store and you won’t leave feeling like you bought 3 books for $20 that you’ll probably never read. Nope, this is one...

Fitness Time

So, I’ve joined a new gym or ‘fitness centre’. I’m actually still going to my old gym once a week too but the new one has childcare so that’s pretty handy! It’s actually been awesome, but some aspects made me giggle at the start. Here’s a basic rundown on what happened recently at my ‘induction’ at my new gym: Personal Trainer says: “What areas do you want to target specifically?” Me secretly thinking: Specifically? All of...

Toys from a distant (but not forgotten) past

A few weeks ago my mum cleaned out the shed. I don’t know if this will resonate with you, but our shed represents an insane amount of my family’s left over gear. Things like uniforms, yearbooks, kids toys, sports ribbons and medals, diaries (eeek!) and so on. The thing I want to talk about is the toys. I mean, wow. There were some ridiculous toys in that shed! Mum had decided to donate anything we no longer wanted, which was pretty much...
