Healthy Body Happy Me logoHealthy Body, Happy Me 2017

Our annual Healthy Body, Happy Me campaign encourages better health and happiness by giving nurseries FREE resources for play, learning and fun, to aid children's development for all ages!

Our main activity each day for 2017 encouraged children to use one of their senses and to get physical in the great outdoors, from 'Smelly Monday' to 'Feeling Friday'!

Healthy Body, Happy Me 2017 took place from 27 -31 March, but you can still download NDNA's FREE resources below and try the activities in your setting.

  • We received lots of fantastic, positive comments from nurseries about how they enjoyed the whole week, such as: “The children and staff enjoyed all of the days.
