Conclusion and application: Opportunities exist to help Victorian OSHC programs with nutrition and physical activity information, resources and training.
OSHC programs are predominately run from schools, although programs also operate in neighbourhood houses, community centres and churches.
The present paper aims to describe the Victorian OSHC sector, particularly in relation to food and physical activity practices.
The present paper aims to explore the potential role of the OSHC sector as a setting for health promotion interventions to improve children's health and examine whether the OSHC sector provides an opportunity to influence children's eating and physical activity habits.
The OSHC sector is the second largest provider of child care in Australia with 2494 services in Australia caring for 162 000 children.
A review of the literature indicated that there were no published reports of health promotion programs conducted in OSHC and few nutrition and food safety resources suited to the setting.
The food safety checklist was based upon the National Standards for OSHC (20) and model health and safety policies developed by the School of Community Medicine, University of NSW (21).
Approval to conduct the needs assessment study was obtained from the coordinators of the OSHC services.
