It’s with great pleasure that we warmly welcome Elevit® Breastfeeding to the Pick Me Help Plunket family. Elevit® Breastfeeding is the second Bayer product to join the Pick Me Help Plunket programme, with Bepanthen® Ointment joining the popular programme in July. It’s no surprise that for some mothers eating a healthy, well balanced and nutritious diet is challenging especially when breastfeeding.
Our Pick Me Help Plunket partner Dettol are launching a great campaign which raises awareness about the importance of hand washing. Check out the GIVE LIFE A HAND campaign film. Every day, more than 2,000 kids around the world die from preventable illnesses like diarrhoea.
Vehicle Testing New Zealand (VTNZ) has teamed up with Plunket to help provide for New Zealand’s future generations as a ‘Pick Me Help Plunket’ partner. The two organisations have been working together since 2006 but are now formalising and extending the relationship. VTNZ Chief Executive Mike Walsh said that, as part of VTNZ’s commitment to safety, “we’re delighted to increase our nationwide support for Plunket to help them provide more support services to New Zealand families.
It’s an interesting time for the paid parental leave lobby group, 26 for Babies coalition. On 19 September the draft law aiming for 26 weeks’ paid parental leave will be back in the hands of our politicians. Plunket recommends 26 weeks’ paid parental leave to give New Zealand children the best start in life.
