Description

Southern NSW Local Health District invites cooks and educators working in early childhood education and care in NSW to join us for a FREE Healthy Menu Planning Workshop, part of NSW Health’s Munch & Move program.

Tap into the network of cooks and educators who are committed to helping children choose healthier choices and build your skills, knowledge and understanding in relation to nutrition and healthy menu planning, in this 3-hour workshop delivered by ECTARC.

Attendees will learn practical tips on managing challenges such as fussy eating, food costs and food allergies and intolerances. The workshops are based on the Caring for Children: Birth to 5 years (Food, Nutrition and Learning Experiences) resource and cover the following topics:

  • why healthy eating is important for children,

  • the Australian Dietary Guidelines and the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating, including the five food groups, serve sizes for children and discretionary foods,

  • the ECEC services requirements under the National Quality Framework,

  • modifying recipes to make them healthier,

  • reading food labels, and

  • managing challenges such as food costs, fussy eaters, food intolerances and allergies.
