Little Lungs - Pūkahukahu Iti is a project delivered by WellSouth and Southern DHB. It is a best practice workshop for the early childhood sector on the Smokefree Aotearoa 2025 goal.

The programmes provides the teaching community with simple ideas and tools to deliver and promote Smokefree cars and homes messages to parents and caregivers. The core component of the programme is a workshop delivered at a staff meeting along with a follow up meeting a month later. On-going support is provided on an as requested basis. In addition, we have some helpful resources that can be downloaded from our website. 

Since 2013 it has been delivered to over 250 teachers from 50 centres early childhood centres throughout Otago and Southland. The programme is supported locally by representatives from the Ministry of Education.
