The goal of the Clontarf Aboriginal College Nutrition program was to increase students' knowledge and skills in nutrition and to enable them to adopt a healthy diet.
The program consisted of interactive, hands-on activities, and was complemented by cooking classes where the students made easy, healthy snacks such as pizza muffins. Students were educated in nutritional topics such as daily recommendations for fruit and vegetable consumption, the five food groups, and food variety.
Evaluation of the program showed that a large majority of the students could recall the information, and that half of them had made one or more of the healthy snacks at home.
The program was run by the South Metropolitan Public Health Unit, South Metropolitan Health Service.
