What is the FOODcents for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People in WA Project (ATSI FOODcents)?

The ATSI FOODcents program is an adaptation of the Health Department of WA's FOODcents program.

The ATSI FOODcents Education Manual is a guide for people working with the Aboriginal community to promote healthy eating. Activities include "Healthy Foods", "Healthy Dollars" and the "Cook-Up". Due to requests from the community for suitable recipes, especially for people with diabetes, the 'Deadly Tucker' cookbook was also developed as part of this program.

All recipes from the manual have been produced as a separate resource. The Deadly Tucker cookbook is now available in colour with step-by-step photographs for each recipe, including ingredients and equipment needed.

The Cookbook is included in the Manual or you can order it separately. Click here for the order form.
