The author of this week's blog would prefer to remain anonymous but she is angry about the level of confectionery available at her child care centre - not only through funraising events but also for sale at the front desk! Does this story where she bravely confronts the Manager and gets a very unexpected reply resonate with you? Do you think fundraising through confectionery has any place in child care centres, schools or sporting clubs?
The Parents' Jury
The Parents’ Jury has been around since 2004. We’re an online network of parents, carers and grandparents who want to change and improve the nutrition and physical activity environments of Australian kids. In other words, group of concerned people who want our kids to be healthy and active!
The sad day has arrived when we have to wave off our valiant Campaigns Manager, Corrina. We know you'll agree that over the last two years she has well and truly brought The Parents' Jury to the forefront of campaigning for better environments for children. She's changed us in numerous ways, set us up in the digital world and hopefully started us on the path to bigger and better things. Thank you Corrina for helping us grow and we wish you every success for your life in the future.
We have been delighted at the success of our blog here at TPJ headquarters. To celebrate the start of 2013, we're going to revisit the most popular blogs of 2012.
So, if you missed them first time, here they are again! First up is TPJ member and academic Dr Trina Hinkley, who wrote a great piece in May 2012 offering advice on monitoring electronic screen viewing and tips on how to reduce screen time.
