Let's Play Everyday

The Health Promotion Agency (HPA) introduces the ‘Let’s play every day’ campaign. The campaign is a partnership between HPA, Sport New Zealand and Healthy Families New Zealand, and is aimed at parents and whānau of children under five. The three key messages for the campaign are:

  1. Play with your kids – it’s fun and helps with their learning and development
  2. Provide your kids with lots of opportunities to play, both alone and with others, indoors and outside, and in ways that move all of their bodies
  3. Play doesn’t need to be formal, structured or cost money
