Getting the kids to sleep on time can be a big challenge for families. A safefood survey showed that over 60% of parents think their child doesn’t get enough sleep. If you’d like to check out whether your child is getting enough sleep, you can download and keep our sleep diary for a week. For younger children, it might help to use a reward chart to encourage better sleep patterns, or have a look at our sleep tipzzzz

Sleep Diary
