Your healthy living treasure chests


Inspired by the third video in our Learning at Home with the Commissioner series, Children’s Health Scotland asked children to create their own treasure chests of the things they need to grow up healthy and well.

An image of an assembled "treasure chest": a bag with a bottle of water, healthy food, something to keep teeth clean, something to help you sleep, something to help you exercise, and something that keeps you happy.

It involves filling a box or bucket with:

  • a piece of healthy food
  • a bottle of water
  • something to clean your teeth
  • something that helps you sleep
  • something that helps you exercise
  • something that keeps you happy.

Your treasure chests

Thanks to the children, parents and carers who gave us permission to share their treasure chests below.

His toy tiger represents sleeping well, a flask of water represents food and drink, his football represents exercise, his hoodie represents having clothes, toys represent having fun, and the photo of his family represents being loved.
