What is Under 5 Energize?

Under 5 Energize is a project that will work alongside early childhood centres to improve healthy eating and increase the quality and quantity of physical activity, both planned and spontaneous.

This is a free service in four communities throughout the Waikato region:

  • North Waikato (Huntly, Ngaruawahia, Te Kauwhata, Raglan,)
  • South Waikato (Tokoroa, Putaruru, Tirau) 
  • Thames/Hauraki (Thames, Waihi, Ngatea, Paeroa) 
  • Hamilton - Waikato Kindergarten Association centers (Hamilton, Cambridge, Raglan, Ngaruawahia) 
Four Under 5 Energizers have been employed to work in these communities - one for each community.
