Learn about the benefits of good nutrition and share those benefits with your people. As health professionals you can be great role models for your communities. This course is also open to people who assist, support and offer advice to Pacific communities.

Our training team will work with you to find the right nutrition-based programme for your workplace. A minimum of 15 to a maximum of 25 people is required to run a course.

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

What will I learn?

  • Pacific cultural perspectives on food
  • Impact of cultural perspectives on Pacific peoples' health
  • Practical ways to improve Pacific peoples' health
  • Effective ways to engage with Pacific
  • Pacific heart health statistics

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 health workforce, for example:

  • cultural engagement
  • nutrition for infant and child health
  • nutrition to reduce disease risk factors (heart, diabetes, stroke).

On top of valuable nutrition tips and skills you will learn, we can also incorporate a cooking component at the end of the session that will teach you how to cook a cheap, quick and easy nutritious meal. 

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