Pacific community nutrition course

Want to learn how to make healthier sapasui (chop suey) or ota (raw fish salad)? We will teach you how to understand nutritional information so you will be able to make traditional dishes healthy - for you, your family, friends and wider community. Find out how you can register for the Pacific community nutrition course.

The Pacific community nutrition course is for people working with Pacific families and communities. A basic level of spoken English is helpful as all training is in the English language. 

$30 per person covers costs related to course workbooks, resources, morning and afternoon tea.

The nutrition course can be tailored to best suit the needs of your group regardless of where you are in New Zealand. A minimum of 15 to a maximum of 25 people is required to run a course. We are happy to discuss with you a training package that will best suit your needs.

Please note - a venue which meets our requirements must be organised by the group requesting training.

What will I learn?

This course is 'hands on'. You’ll discover ways of taking nutrition information and using it in everyday life.

We cover a range of topics over one or two days. We can also tailor topics based on the needs of your group. The range of topics include:

  • Introduction for nutrition and health
  • Role of food in Pacific cultures
  • Meal planning and portion sizes
  • Reading food labels
  • Shopping on a budget.

You will receive a Pacific Heartbeat Certificate of Completion after completing the course.
