Regional Survey Of Student Health And Wellbeing

In 2020, Nourishing Hawke’s Bay completed a baseline regional survey of student health and wellbeing (survey and anthropometry) from 43 schools with year 5 and 9 tamariki and rangatahi. In addition, we surveyed Early Learning Services and primary and secondary school’s food environments using the School Food Environment Review and Support Tool to measure food environments within schools. We are repeating this survey in 2023 with the same methods. The repeat survey will also serve as part of an evaluation of the KOKA programme in HB. The objective is to develop a monitoring and feedback system to collect baseline data and establish a database of child and adolescent wellbeing indicators for the region.
