Enhance your pupils’ knowledge of food, healthy eating, food groups and well-being with our hands-on interactive Melbourne school incursions and workshops. Since 2012 we have taught 20,000 pupils in Victoria run by our team of passionate nutrition & dietetic educators.
Our school incursions are based on The Australian guide to healthy eating model, food groups, key nutrients but also exciting research showing that food has a large impact on how we feel and our well-being and how to make healthier ‘smart swaps’ to our food & drink choices. For prep & years 1 and 2 we use a superhero character theme, which has led to a higher pupil uptake and acceptance of vegetables.
Both our face-to-face and online school incursions use a 50% teaching, 50% activity-based approach to classroom education including age-appropriate: quizzes, worksheets, anatomy models & felt, games, case studies, food tasting, and seed growing that excite all learning styles and interests. In addition, we also offer sustainable red tip eco-bananas to all students when available.
For all high school incursions, we present to whole-year groups in a seminar format, please click here for more information.
From 2021 we will be using a COVID safe plan when working in Victorian schools.
