Let’s Eat is an occupational therapy cooking program held in the Spring school holidays. The face to face group program is designed to teach participants how to safely and independently make simple and tasty meals.

Our occupational therapists will demonstrate how participants can cook using their current abilities, introduce new skills on task modification and use helpful assistive and adaptive equipment in the kitchen. 

Cooking doesn’t just involve putting all the ingredients together. It also involves planning grocery list, budgeting and purchasing ingredients. 

What are the outcomes?
  • Learn cooking skills and strategies to be more confident in the kitchen
  • Learn the basics of food preparation (opening jars, how to open cans, cutting, cracking eggs, opening packets)
  • Learn about a variety of assistive or adaptive equipment which can help with cooking
  • Learn about task analysis and how to modify task to support independence and success with cooking
  • Strengthening social participation and skills
Who is this program for?
  • Participants who have:
    • Interest in cooking and being in the kitchen
    • The ability to use two hands together or have the necessary support available to provide assistance with using two hand together (e.g. working towards using a knife and fork with support)
    • The ability to listen and follow instructions (2 step instructions). This includes turn taking.
