Healthy jarjums make healthy food choices

 

Overview

The Healthy jarjums make healthy food choices program was aimed at teaching young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children about foods that are good for their bodies, so that they may improve their quality of life through better nutrition.

The program was designed to guide and assist educators by presenting suggested activities, lessons and resources. Resources included a full colour nutrition education manual and flip chart and and an educational resource for innovative nutrition and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural lessons for pre-school to grade 3.

The resources from the program are still available online.
