The Sugar Blues

Sweets and treats are a childhood delight, and many fond memories are forged through exciting food fare at parties and  special events. However, what happens to children’s bodies and behaviours when they’re allowed to regularly consume sugary foods – often referred to as the ‘sugar blues’?

Fats & Oils: do they make you fat?

Some people may question if our nation’s fat problem has something to do with fat consumed, seeing they share the same name? Yet throughout history, plant and animal fats have formed a crucial part of our healthily weighted ancestors’ natural food source.


‘It was engaging, lively and relevant for our year one class. It supported our nutrition study and encouraged children to try new fruit and vegetables.’

‘Characters the children can relate to, children can participate, catchy songs, strong message for children in a fun age appropriate manner. Loved it all.’

‘Congratulations! Great interactions with Louise & students. Dress ups and songs very popular, characters get kids attention and easily dressed up in beaut costumes. Goal chart & award appears a popular follow up. Fantastic idea with rainbow colours. Students very keen to try fruit & vegetables after the show.’

“Thank you so much and WOW what an impact your show had on our Year 2 children. I think the real proof of the impact of your show was evident during our three-way parent conferences: the parents were aware of the show and all the characters.  They reported that their children were actively trying foods of all colours and could tell them the purpose of eating that food.  Many children have been to birthday parties and reported to Mum or Dad that “Sneaky Sweetie” was whispering in their ear and they needed to choose healthier foods.  Others have expressed their concern that there were some “Bad Bugs” in their tummy and they needed to eat some healthy food to make them better.  So, as you can see, you have made an impact on many of the children, and the parents truly appreciate the raised awareness of their children in regards to healthy eating. ”

Roslyn Sullivan Year 2 Team Leader, Teacher, John Paul College, Brisbane QLD

‘A great show. Students were very enthusiastic throughout – loved the dressing up and songs. The rainbow food was a good way to finish.’
