What's involved?

  • The program consists of weekly parent-child group classes during school term

  • For children aged 3–6

  • Designed & facilitated by university-qualified nutritionist, Kate Curtis, who has specialised training in helping fussy eaters and problem feeders

  • Each session focuses on sparking curiosity and making food fun. This is achieved through a mix of sensory exploration, cooking and play in a relaxed and supportive environment

  • Each week, we learn about and explore a different seasonal food, with a creative cooking session to finish the term

  • Equipment and food provided.


  • The workshops help children develop positive relationships with food – an essential for healthy eating.

  • Early food experiences shape future food preferences and eating behaviours. By attending you help your child establish a preventive approach to good health. 

  • The program incorporates evidence-based strategies that help children gain interest in foods and encourage them to want to explore foods for themselves, taking the pressure off everyone.

  • Children gain knowledge, life skills and a greater appreciation for food.

  • Cooking with your kids at home is fun, right!? Well, not everybody agrees. The sessions save you the planning, set-up and cleaning associated with food-related activities in the home.

Classes proposed to resume as restrictions ease. To stay updated, please register your interest below.
