Workshops

The Child Nutrition and Wellbeing Program staff run a variety of nutrition based workshops in all NPY Communities and also in Alice Springs for Child Nutrition Program clients who may be in town for various reasons.

Workshops are focussed on encouraging adults and children in NPY communities to make good food choices and providing food preparation education.

Workshops often include workshops with:

  • Playgroups
  • Schools – designed to educate children about nutrition – how the food we eat affects our bodies and to foster an understanding of the importance of adequate and appropriate nutrition for optimum health and disease prevention.
  • Community Parenting Centres
  • Community Family Centres
  • Bush Picnics –are conducted in a bush setting and help to encourage mums, carers and family members to incorporate more bush food into their diets. Bush picnics are relaxed, informal and often impromptu.
