Deakin University presents the Joy of moving study

At the request of Ferrero Australia, promoting our company’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility featuring the Kinder Joy of moving program, Dr Nicole Papadopoulos from the Deakin Child Studies Centre presented an overview of the study at the Australian Confectionery industry conference “Contech 2019” to an audience of over 130 industry delegates on June 19th in Melbourne. The presentation acknowledged Ferrero’s contribution, explained the importance of movement for children’s development, the Joy of moving methodology and some feedback on initial results of the Australian research to date. A video was also presented to the delegates of how the program is working in practice. At the time of the presentation there was 1,920 students from 17 schools (both mainstream and special) engaged in the study with the project already generating considerable positive stakeholder feedback. Early testimonials from teachers involved in the study include: “we have an amazing opportunity to switch children on to the fun and lifetime benefits for body and mind through movement,” and “it’s vital to cultivate a love of movement and exercise in children to encourage regular lifetime activity.”
