This is a clinically supervised one-hour group cooking session open to all capabilities and all ages. The aim of this program is to facilitate the development of basic skills to support application of healthy nutrition principles and to build participant confidence to independently carry out healthy food and lifestyle changes and behaviours long term.
This program is designed to encourage self-management skills in basic food selection and preparation.
