Move Well Eat Well Refresh Updates

We are excited to share that we are updating Move Well Eat Well!

A lot has changed since MWEW started working with Tasmanian primary schools and early childhood services. This decade has brought new challenges in creating schools and services that support children to eat well and move well. Educators need different support and new ideas to meet these challenges.

We understand educators need simple steps they can take every day, no matter where they are on their MWEW journey.

What does this mean for Tasmanian schools and services?

We will be taking some time to understand how to streamline and strengthen our program. We will work with Tasmanian educators, schools and services to reimagine what MWEW can be.

To help us do this, we are pausing MWEW Award renewals and new MWEW Award applications from 29 September 2023:

  • If your school or service is ready to achieve your Award, contact us now.
  • If your school or service is due to renew your MWEW Award, you now have a choice. You can undertake the full renewal process or choose our new self-check option. Contact us now,

While we update the program:

  • We will continue to welcome new members.
  • Award members will retain their status.
  • We will continue sharing resources and responding to support requests.
  • Opportunities for you to apply for incentives will continue.
  • Support for schools who offer a food service (eg. canteen) will continue through School Food Matters.
  • Support for services who offer a food service will continue through MWEW dietitians.

Stay connected with MWEW through this web page, our Facebook page, and our termly newsletter. Send us an email to join our newsletter mailing list.

We will share details by the end of 2023 on how you can get involved and help create the future of MWEW.
