Third visit to our school by primary health nurse.

We were recently visited by a rural primary health nurse who provided our students with information regarding healthy living which included healthy eating and nutritional information.

Kate took the students through some healthy recipes and engaged all students in the cooking process which they seemed to enjoy. The students all ate the food they prepared and ate together at lunch. Some of the foods included were broccoli and zucchini. Kate took them through the vitamins that were in each food and also spoke about portion size in treats. Only one student out of 18 didn’t eat the food that was cooked however that student did try two of the four dishes.

Kate was very encouraging and non-judgemental.

Thank you for this comment. It is great to receive positive feedback about this program, which will hopefully improve eating habits and reduce chronic disease rates in the future.
