Secondary School Incursions

Healthy Eating and Nutrition

 Interactive, fun, Secondary School Incursions for Melbourne students, run by insured and qualified Community Nutritionists

Prevention is better than cure”. In a society where obesity and type 2 diabetes is becoming more prevalent among the younger generations, children from an early age should be able to identify was constitutes as a healthy balanced diet to prevent this from happening. Daley nutrition work with community groups and schools to reduce the risk of chronic disease such as obesity and diabetes via fun and interactive secondary school incursions.

In Australia on average from the ages of 2-16 one in four children are currently overweight or obese, which will continue through to adulthood and by 2025 two thirds of Australian adults will be overweight, and a third will develop type 2 diabetes during their lifetime.
Our programs are designed and aim to prevent this from happening from an early age. Our evaluation data collected shows promising results in children’s behaviour change based around healthy eating when we follow them up 1,2,3 years after our incursions and workshops.
