Get Set 4 Life – habits for healthy kids Guide

The aim of the Healthy Kids Check is to ensure every four year old child in Australia has a basic health check to see if they are healthy, fit and ready to learn when they start school. The Healthy Kids Check promotes early detection of lifestyle risk factors, delayed development and illness, and introduces guidance for healthy lifestyles and early intervention strategies

The Healthy Kids Check can be undertaken by a medical practitioner, including a GP but not including a specialist or consultant physician, or a practice nurse on behalf of a GP. For further information on the Get set 4 Life Guide and the Healthy Kids Check go to
