TOTS GET HEALTH MESSAGE SINGING KETTLE STYLE!

September 09, 2003 11:04 AM

UNDER-fives throughout Greater Glasgow are being urged to ‘Get Up and Go' with the NHS and the Singing Kettle.

NHS Greater Glasgow and the popular children's entertainment group have teamed up to produce a new video that aims to encourage young children to be more healthy.

Distributed to nurseries and under-fives groups throughout Greater Glasgow as part of Health Week, the new singalong video teaches tots about the importance of brushing their teeth, eating healthy food and taking part in exercise.

NHS Greater Glasgow Health Promotion Officer, Joy Farquharson said: "This new video aims to teach very young children about the importance of being healthy in a fun and friendly way. 

"The children can enjoy singing along with the Singing Kettle whilst learning all about brushing their teeth, eating healthy food and how fun it is to exercise.

"We're hoping that by making being healthy fun, these children will take these messages with them throughout their lives."

Artie Trezise from the Singing Kettle said: "This has been a fantastic project to be involved with. It gives kids the best start in life while still having fun. It's difficult to come up with songs that kids enjoy but will also get across a message. We feel that we have achieved this with "Get up and Go". Hopefully this will help Scottish children today grow up as a healthier generation."

And it's not just children who attend nurseries or under-fives groups who can see the video. NHS Greater Glasgow has 50 copies of the video to give away. The first 50 people to call 0141 201 4876 will have a copy sent out to them.

Health Week is a week of healthy living events run by Glasgow City Council in partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow.
