Healthy snacks make cents

31st October 2008

In collaboration with Foodbank WA, Al-Hidayah Islamic School organized a Cooking Project for students, teachers and Parents on 22nd of October.

Parents gave very positive feedback at the end of session. They picked up a few healthy cooking recipes and learnt about food budgeting. Irene Verteramo, Project Coordinator - FBWA Food Sense Program and Vanessa Bobongie, Health Promotion Officer at Foodbank WA conducted both sessions.

The FOODcents Cooking Project is a practical food budgeting program which has been developed for Foodbank WA’s extensive school and community networks. It aims to increase the knowledge, skills and intention to: source, purchase, prepare and consume a variety of nutritionally preferable foods, such as fruit, vegetables and various cereals and legumes.

The FOODcents Cooking Project covers a range of food related topics including basic nutrition principles, food budgeting and cooking skills. The program also provides pictorial resources that can be used by a variety of groups in the WA community.
