Apart from this website and blog, I spend a lot of time on the Itchin’ Kitchen Facebook page and Instagram – come join us there!
But when you really love what you do, you tend to talk about it to anyone and everyone who’ll listen!! So on this page you can find a few of the other places I discuss and teach nutrition, kids, allergies and edible gardening.
**Recently, the Clinical Journal of Allergy and Immunology released a new report with the findings that total bans in school on food items like peanuts was likely not the best way forward for managing allergies – hear my conversation on ABC Perth’s Drive program with Geoff Hutchinson about how we manage the issue.
**I recently delivered a presentation on Food and Mood to a group of School Principals who are looking at the well-being of themselves, their staff and students. So great to see more and more people understanding the link between food and mental health. Reach out to me here if you want to to come and talk to your staff or students.
** I worked with a wonderful Perth School as their Community Gardener and Sustainability Officer – you can see some more of my work through my Facebook page, here.
**We worked with St John’s to advocate for First Aid Allergy and Anaphylaxis training for parents – you can find the article here
Twinkl Australia (Educational Resources Company) asked me to be a guest writer for National Science Week all about the changes we can make to combat our food waste problem. You can find the article HERE
