Nutrition & Grow Well

The Anyinginyi com­mu­ni­ty nutri­tion pro­gram aims to cre­ate an envi­ron­ment that sup­ports good health. The nutri­tion ser­vices pro­vid­ed in Ten­nant Creek are con­stant­ly evolv­ing to adapt to the needs and requests of com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers and organ­i­sa­tions.

The pro­gram includes atten­dance at large health pro­mo­tion events that spread mes­sages of good health to whole com­mu­ni­ties, nutri­tion edu­ca­tion and cook­ing work­shops with var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ty groups and schools, as well as indi­vid­ual con­sults with clients referred from the health clin­ic.

In addi­tion to the pre­dom­i­nant­ly town-based ini­tia­tives, the nutri­tion­ist also vis­its remote Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­ni­ties on a reg­u­lar basis. Togeth­er with the rest of the team at Anyinginyi, the dieti­cian endeav­ours to pro­vide holis­tic care and build the capac­i­ty of the com­mu­ni­ty to make healthy lifestyle choices.
