Stir it up!

Stir it up! peer educators provide healthy eating education and activities for schools, preschools, playgroups and community organisations. Activities include:
- Talks and cooking demonstrations.
- Presentations at community gardens.
- Cooking classes.
- Supermarket tours.
Stir it up! peer educators are trained to deliver a range of topics, including:
- Healthy eating.
- Practical food ideas.
- Presentation skills.
- Kitchen safety.
- Food hygiene.
Stir It up! is coordinated in partnership with the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD).
