School Holiday Cooking Workshops

NAQ Nutrition hosts cooking workshops during the school holidays on behalf of the Brisbane City Council’s Chillout program. Our enjoyable hands-on workshops allow children to create healthy and tasty meals under the guidance of a qualified Dietitian or Nutritionist.


Some information about our Chillout cooking workshops:

  • Open to Brisbane residents aged 8 – 17 years old
  • $5 per person. Pay via PayPal ONLY -Sorry no cash payments accepted
  • All participants must wear closed in shoes.
  • To book multiple children please do a separate registration for each child.
  • Maximum of 4 children per adult (adult is not required to participate)
  • You will receive a confirmation text message a day before the workshop to confirm your place.



We are thrilled to announce that we are back running face to face workshops! With strict COVID safety plans ensuring we adhere to social distancing rules, you will see some changes to the way our workshops are run, however this won’t take away from the fantastic experience of participating in our cooking workshops! Some of these include  reduced participant numbers, no sharing of ingredients or cooking equipment, participants preparing food for themselves only, and payment prior to the event only (no cash will be taken on the day).  Our number 1 priority is to ensure the safety of all participants.

Please note – Due to Queensland Government restrictions regarding gatherings, siblings and parents will not be allowed into the venue unless booked in. Please call or email us if your child needs you to attend or requires more assistance. Cash payments on the day will not be accepted, please pay online.

Important – if you are showing signs of cold or flu, have travelled in the last 14 days (domestically or internationally) or have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, we are unable to let you attend the workshop. If you have booked into the course and reply yes to any of these,  please know in advance and we will refund or postpone your booking.

You can find more information about our COVID safe plans and policies on our website here
