Navigating nutrition and the NDIS

Within the workshop, you’ll explore the ins and outs of NDIS pathways, learn tips and tricks for supporting a successful NDIS plan and understand how dietitians can help meet the needs of their NDIS patients.

Culinary nutrition workshop

Applying sensory science to change eating behaviour 

Ever considered how sight, sound and aroma affect consumption? Or why textures like crispy, crunchy or squeaky make eating more enjoyable? Join us in our face-to-face culinary nutrition workshop with Emma Stirling and the culinary nutrition science team from Australian Catholic University to explore how dietitians can masterfully bring together the science of nutrition and the art of cooking. In this half-day workshop, you’ll learn how dietitians can influence the context and experience of eating to help change perceptions and behaviour around food. The workshop will start with a taste of the theory of sensory science and an expert culinary demonstration. You’ll then don your apron to cook, plate and style irresistible healthy food, before sitting down to enjoy your creations while networking. Get in quick – there are only 50 spots available.

Venue: Melbourne Polytechnic, Preston Campus
