Centre: Wetherill Park
Diabetes NSW supports people living with, and at risk of, diabetes. Diabetes NSWs’ dietitian Mellissa was searching for a cooking program to assist young adults with independent living skills, including cooking and healthy eating.
Mellissa found Jamie’s Ministry of Food in Wetherill Park and after discussions with food trainer Renee, Diabetes NSW made a group booking. The group were 17-25 year olds with Type 1 diabetes who were in the process of moving out of home – the aim was for them to learn to cook healthy, fast and delicious meals.
Diabetes NSW booked groups into the Jamie’s Ministry of Food course and arranged for a Diabetes NSW dietitian to attend each class to provide advice, answer any questions and suggest recipe alternatives where appropriate.
All participants would recommend the Jamie’s Ministry of Food course to others and all reported to be ‘very satisfied’ with the course. Diabetes NSW also believed the Jamie’s Ministry of Food course would benefit people living with Type 2 diabetes and have since made group bookings for Type 2 diabetics and parent and child groups. We look forward to continuing to work with Diabetes NSW to implement a program that benefits people living with diabetes.
