Healthy Eating & Nutrition

Daley Nutrition’s interactive and fun children’s centre workshops are all about good nutrition for children

Daley Nutrition is the largest and most trusted provider of healthy eating children’s centre workshops in Victoria.  We are a health team of university qualified Registered Nutritionists, dietitians, teachers, dental nurses and performing artists.

Below is a description of each children’s centre workshops and incursions.   Topics include healthy eating, nutrition and oral health and hygiene. They have been designed by nutritionists, dental nurses and professional entertainers to be to be fun, educational and create behaviour change in children.  We ensure that the workshops cater for individual needs and learning styles and maintain the attention of the children.  The feedback we receive from parents about our children’s centre workshops is great, and we find that children are more willing to try new fruits and veg at home.

  • Catering to different learning styles: visual, auditory, kinesthetic and reading/writing learners.
  • More than 75% of the workshops are interactive and activity based and involve food tasting, which research has shown to increase pupils attention and retention levels of the taught material.
