Amazing positive health impact from KidsCan initiative

Yesterday I spent several hours visiting a couple of schools with KidsCan.

During the visits we were assessing with the principal the impact of various programmes that KidsCan operates in the schools, including some I’d never heard of before the visits.

Most people know that KidsCan provides food in schools in conjunction with major corporates, but they also provide raincoats, jackets, shoes?and nit treatment.

Both schools said that the Warriors-branded jackets were very popular and had made a difference with keeping kids warm in winter months.

Nits not nice, but there is help available from KidsCan

logo

TVNZ ran a programme yesterday about a nits outbreak currently being experienced in schools.

One of KidsCan’s programmes is aimed at head lice treatment:

Head lice love summer and are often on beach towels and in hats that kids share helping them to spread like wildfire. Contrary to popular myths nits are not caused by poor hygiene ? they are simply becoming more and more resistant to treatments. ?

KidsCan?s Health for Kids Programme Manager, Julia Haydon-Carr says ?The power is in the comb. Any products that help the comb run through the hair easily, such as conditioner, are key. Parents should feel empowered to take over the issue themselves. It?s about keeping vigilant and checking children?s hair often ? take a peek once a week.? KidsCan currently has 35 Health Champions in 111 schools throughout New Zealand treating head lice on site as many parents face a huge cost barrier to affording effective treatments with prices starting from $20.

KidsCan Health Champions use the Super Nit Buster Comb in school clinics around the country and believe they are superior to other nit combs available.?This comb will help to quickly and easily get rid of head lice and every last egg with its special grooved tooth design, and is now available from KidsCan for $15 plus postage (selling elsewhere for $27). All proceeds from sales?will go to?KidsCan, helping us to continue our work supporting disadvantaged Kiwi kids.?$4?postage and packaging fee to anywhere in New Zealand. Delivery within five working days. Price is inclusive of GST.?
