The initiative encourages ministers for health and education to commit to the Wellness for Children program and so far there are 18 Caribbean nations involved. The photo below shows a minister for health pledging to the wellness program – the 5 senses solution for happy healthy children.
Touch Therapy Training in Ireland
The initiative understands the importance of touch in early development and so as part of the 5 Senses Solution program the group had a train the trainer seminar in Ireland at junior genius and baby genius (pilot program) with 10, 12 and 13 month olds along with the older group of 4 year olds. The teachers/carers reported that each child slept longer during nap time, all had bowel movements and all ate a good lunch. Parents noticed improved sleep overnight.
