Healthy habits for small heroes

Thanks to our friends at healthdirect, every Suncorp NetSetGO participation will find a Healthy Habits activity book in this year’s participant pack.  The book is jam-packed with activities to help your small hero develop healthy habits. And we’ve added in some handy tips for mum and dad too!

As a parent, you play a huge role in helping your child develop healthy habits, so we’ve created some handy fact sheets for you to download.

We decided to create short videos demonstrating eight different things your small heroes can do on a daily basis to help them stay strong, fit and healthy. Check them out here, you might see a few familiar faces!
