Food and nutrition

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.

Junior Kitchen

Coming up in the April school holidays is our Junior Kitchen workshop series. Junior Kitchen is a chance for your kids to get cooking while learning a range of skills to support healthy development. Each child and parent/carer will work as a team to create a range of lunchbox recipes and complete fun nutrition challenges.
