Healthy eating

We are committed to improving the health and wellbeing of our residents.

We hold a range of healthy eating workshops and programs throughout the year for community members to attend. There are no further workshops scheduled for 2020, we look forward to sharing the exciting workshops for 2021 soon.

Where to go for advice

If you are looking to learn more about ways to improve your health, see some of the below resources.

  • The Australian Dietary Guidelines have information about the types and amounts of foods, food groups and dietary patterns that aim to:
    • promote health and wellbeing;
    • reduce the risk of diet-related conditions, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity; and
    • reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some types of cancers.
  • The Heart Foundation has great resources, recipes and information about healthy eating for heart health.
  • Livelighter has a range of recipe booklets and ideas to give you the skills to make small (or big) lifestyle changes to improve your health.  There are also downloadable resources to educate your family and community.
