Mighty Bites: Keeping Primary School Kids Healthy

Mighty Bites is the new kid on the block for supporting healthy eating habits in primary school students.

Mighty Bites is a Nutrition Australia NSW program that supports and inspires students from Years 3 to 6 to cultivate an understanding of the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating, the five food groups and making healthy food choices.

At Nutrition Australia NSW, we are passionate about supporting a healthier future for children across NSW

Mighty Bites is delivered by our passionate Accredited Practising Dietitians either in the classroom or via e-learning technology. Firmly grounded in evidence-based best practice and effective learning principles, students are engaged with the most up-to-date nutrition information, and leave the session feeling inspired to enjoy healthy foods at home.

The Mighty Bites program covers:

  • The Five Food Groups
