The Good Food Good Mood events include a 40-minute interactive live cooking demonstration and an online presentation. They are being held on 14 and 22 September.
Joel Feren, aka the Nutrition Guy, is an accredited dietician and nutritionist as well as recipe developer and nutrition consultant.
The information session will explain the relationship between good nutrition and mental wellbeing. Joel’s presentation will be followed by 15 minutes of question and answer time. Participants are invited to send in questions at the time of booking or on the night via the chat function.
As part of the cooking demonstration, Joel will use simple and easy to find ingredients to make recipes with a healthy twist, family favourites such as burgers, smoothies and pesto. The whole family is invited to get involved and cook alongside Joel in the comfort of their own kitchens.
These events are brought to you by Knox City Council as part of a joint initiative with Each, Eastern Regional Libraries, Neami National, Boroondara, City of Kingston, City of Monash, Manningham Council, Maroondah City Council, Whitehorse City Council and Yarra Ranges Council.
