Foodbank WA’s Food Sensations initiative provides nutrition education through fun, interactive and engaging workshop sessions with lesson plans linked to the National Curriculum and is tailored to suit your year group.
Facilitated by qualified Nutritionists and Dietitians and suitable for both primary and high school students. Parent and teacher sessions are also available.
During a 90 minute session students learn about healthy eating through hands on activities which are engaging and developmentally appropriate. Working in groups students learn to cook delicious and healthy recipes. Parents/guardians are encouraged to participate as helpers in sessions.
Session topics can include:
· The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating
· Take-away Vs Home-made Foods
· Sugar in Drinks
· Meal Planning
· Hygiene and safe food handling
Food Sensations sessions are available FREE OF CHARGE to registered School Breakfast Program schools
(*note, only schools registered for our SBP are eligible for Food Sensation sessions).
Sessions can be conducted in Foodbank WA’s fully equipped training kitchen or Foodbank can come to your school.
All cooking equipment and ingredients are supplied by Foodbank. If foodbank is attending your school, running water/sink and power is required.
