About This Program

We Eat Together will be facilitated by a Dietitian and a team of Allied Health Professionals.

The program includes collaborative activities where participants will learn about the history, ingredients, preparation, and nutritional value of meals from their respective cultures.

Participants will also learn about the nutritional importance of traditional meals and receive advice on how to make healthy food choices that are culturally relevant.

Program Outline

  • Each child will select an easy-to-prepare dish from their culture to learn about during the program.
  • Children will write a simple shopping list, buy the ingredients online, be guided by the dietitian to make healthy choices, prepare the meal at home with their parents and share their dish with the group on the last day of the program when a communal meal will be served.
  • During this communal meal, chefs from local restaurants will be invited to serve and speak about dishes representative of their respective communities.
  • This will be a fully-funded program (including: enrolment, ingredients and the incursion) and therefore be of no cost to the family.

We Eat Together will be run in two groups:


Group 1: 5-11 year olds – Tuesday 11th April to Friday 14th April: 9am-12pm.

Group 2: 12-17 year olds – Monday 17th April to Wednesday 19th April: 9am-2pm

Where: Irabina Bayswater – 52 Stud Road Bayswater, 3153.

Cost: FREE – this program is fully-funded by VicHealth and completely free!
