Healthy Ears, Happy Kids resources
Sydney: NSW Kids and Families

These resources promote the importance of good personal hygiene, nutrition and regular ear health checks for preventing middle ear disease (otitis media).

They also describe the signs of ‘sick ears’ which parents and caregivers should look out for in children. They are designed to be shared with Aboriginal children aged zero to six years in New South Wales (NSW) and include:

  • a poster
  • a brochure
  • a pocket brochure
  • stickers
  • a storybook
  • caps for girls and boys.

The resources are brightly coloured and feature a cast of cartoon characters including Bindi the Kangaroo. They are produced as part of Healthy ears, healthy kids: the NSW Aboriginal ear health program. To order physical copies of the resources, contact NSW Kids and Families via the details below.
