In partnership with Stir It Up (Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District) we facilitate a 4 week ‘Healthy eating on a budget’ workshop. This program involves a Family Support Worker from our Child, Youth and Family Team, and a volunteer from Stir It Up.

  • Cooking classes
  • Cooking on a budget
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Encouraging your children to make healthy food choices

  • Supermarket tours that teach about healthy food choices

By the end of the program parents will:

  • Have increased their confidence in how to follow a recipe when cooking a meal
  • Have increased their understanding about healthy food choices
  • Have improved their confidence to cook at home
