IWC's major focus is to improve and support Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, and the vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the Bundaberg and Wide Bay / Burnett.
Make a change for 2019's Smart Eating Week!
Smart Eating Week is returning to Bundaberg, with IWC doing its bit to promote the value of smarter meal choices.
Running from February 11-17, Smart Eating Week serves as an annual reminder that there are a range of organisations around Australia that can help you learn how to take control of your health through diet.
Natalie Selever and Jessica Bauer, IWC’s in-house Accredited Practicing Dietitians (APDs), will be doing their part. The pair will be accessible on that week from the public foyer at 184 Barolin St between 12.45am-1.45pm, or on Wednesday from 9am.
At many universities and institutions, the celebration of Smart Eating Week has been part of the culture for years.
“This is a chance for people to come along and ask questions of an APD without having to book in,” Ms Bauer said
“People tackle it differently; some with cooking demonstrations, some are more interested in the sports and nutrition side of things. Healthy eating on a budget was always a popular one.
“We’re going to be keeping it simple by answering questions from the public and handing out useful information about healthy eating,” Ms Bauer said.
To access an APD, one usually requires a referral from a GP, or pays for the session out of their own pocket.
It is hoped that these informal consultations will mark the beginning of a positive change for those who take part.
Remember, IWC hosts monthly ‘Healthy Eating on a Budget’ workshops on the third Friday of the month, running from 9am to 10.30am.

It’s good to know I can get what I need, not being told when my therapies are, or where I’m going. In the past, that’s how it’s been. As I see it, the NDIS is the only way to go.Giovanni, NDIS participant
