Nutrition advice for everyone

In-School Kids Nutrition Workshop

The Kids Nutrition Workshop has been a very popular choice for many vacation care program and after school program co-ordinators across Sydney because it is fun and educational and the kids get to eat their own creation.

What is included in each workshop?

All workshops are run by qualified dietitians who are members of the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA). Each workshop will include a brief cooking demo, a mini nutrition information presentation based on the theme of the workshop and a kids’ hands-on cooking session. We provide all the ingredients and equipment for use in the class. Stove and oven are usually not required.


Where is it?

We bring the workshop to you. All we need are tables and chairs for the kids to work on and to eat the food afterwards.


How long is it?

A typical workshop runs for about 2 hours (includes set up and pack up time), but we can tailor it to suit your organisation.


Who can attend?

All children of school age can attend including children with special dietary needs such as food allergy, diabetes or coeliac disease.

  • Sports nutrition – what do we need to eat (and what to avoid) to be fit and healthy. The importance of eating breakfast. Examples of good breakfast.
  • “Ready Steady Cook” style game – kids are divided into two teams and to come up with ideas of what to cook using the ingredients we brought in. Of course the dietitians will be right there to assist the kids to come up with ideas of the recipes.
