Explaining COVID-19 to children 

How to explain the Corona Virus to children. 

Health and Wellbeing

Healthy Eating

It’s important to keep a healthy lifestyle while on lockdown and maintaining a healthy diet plays a crucial role. 

Staying Connected 

There are lots of ways to stay connected with friends and family during COVID-19

  • Zoom 
  • Whats App
  • Facetime 
  • Skype 

Stay Active 

Staying active not only ensures you keep your body moving, but exercise also helps to reduce stress, boost your energy levels and keep you more alert.

The government guidelines permit one form of exercise per day, such as going for a walk, but you can also build exercise into your daily life at home.

Mental Heath

Looking after your mental health and wellbeing is important during such times.
