Healthy Heroes for Healthier Futures

The wonderful sound of children laughing usually means they are happy, healthy and contented. We owe it to our children to help them stay healthy and happy.

That is why Rotary has established the Healthy Heroes programme, so that all children can build habits of life that will help them have happy, healthy futures. Stand Children's Services partnered with Rotary to promote the programme nationally. We participate in the delivery of the programme in Christchurch and Wellington.

Healthy Heroes is a simple, easy-to-follow home health programme for 8 to 12 year olds. There are five challenges for them to respond to each day, that promote good health  and help protect them against obesity and type 2 diabetes.
