IF YOU consider Vegemite on toast a dinner meal and opt for the box of Shapes for breakfast, then do yourself a favour and read on.
Headspace manager Mark Goddard said the biggest problem facing Southern Downs youth was health and nutrition.
He said young people were making the wrong decisions at meal times, and some weren't eating at all.
Dietician/nutritionist Elia Faa is working with Headspace and has come up with a program that incorporates a number of workshops for young people to attend to learn the basics of nutrition, with a fun and practical twist.
"It's about getting a bunch of young people together and creating ideas to improve their health and nutrition," Mrs Faa said.
"We'll look at things like two-minute noodles which are a popular afternoon snack, and how to do healthier things with them."
She said attendees would leave the workshops with better knowledge on how to choose foods and make better choices, plus understanding why they need to do it.
The workshops are aimed at people aged 12-25.
Dates have not yet been set, but should be around the end of August or start of September.
Attendees can attend as many or as little many workshops as they choose and there is no cost.
