Healthy choices



SCHOOL children in South Grafton now know a little more about healthy eating after a NAIDOC Week activity held at Camellia Cottage yesterday.

The healthy eating workshop was put together to teach kids the benefits of eating the right foods and showed them how healthy eating could be fun.

Clarence Valley Community Health aboriginal family support worker Audrey Tindall said the day showed kids how they could make healthy choices when preparing food.

"We're trying to teach the kids to eat healthy and this is one way of getting them to interact and teach them that," she said.

Aboriginal Medical Service dietician Fiona Smith said fruit and raisin toast were provided for morning tea, while the kids made pizzas for lunch.

"We're also trying to get the kids to eat all the food groups and a balanced diet," she said.

"We hope they increase their eating of healthy food and often you'll find if healthy food is available they will eat it."
