    National Leftovers Day occurs on the 26th of December and is an event encouraging Australians to love their leftovers and reduce food waste during the festive season and all year round.

    In support of National Leftovers Day, our F.R.E.S.H and Mospress youth volunteers worked together to bring you a short film about how you can reduce your food waste this holiday season.

    For many people, Christmas is a time for food, celebrations and more food! With a little planning and some food saving tips under your belt, that extra piece of Christmas pudding or turkey leg doesn't need to go to waste. Check out our handy hints for reducing food waste below...leftovers jpeg


    Happy Holidays and remember to WATCH YOUR WASTELINE!

    12 girls came along to compete in three teams in our masterchef cook off!

    The lovely dietician Kiara Carmody came with all the groceries and set the challenge...Make bliss balls, baked fish, a pineapple salsa boat AND a seven layer dip in 1 hour. Everyone did a fantastic job and completed all the recipes in time and delivered an epic feast that we all enjoyed! During dinner, Kiara gave us some great tips on lifestyle balance whilst studying, including a few suggestions for great foods to eat to fuel your brain. Check out the great photos of all the delicious food we made - it did NOT dissapoint!

    A massive thankyou to Kiara for all the great tips and recipes (you can access her website HERE). Keep your eyes peeled on our socials for updates on upcoming Girls Only events - if you have any suggestions for Girls nights (Whatever it is, we'll try and make it happen!) please email us at youth@mosman.nsw.gov.au

    Week Two



    FRESH Snacks Blog Page (2)

    In week two, Mospress & F.R.E.S.H cooked up some bite-sized pikelets for after school snacks! These are so simple and quick to make, and taste great topped with any type of fruits and maple syrup! With the addition of a gluten and dairy free member this week, we made an alternate recipe that still tasted completely delicious without the milk and gluten! Read below for the recipes...



    • 3/4 cup milk (for dairy free: any plant based milk - we used soy!)
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup self-raising flour (for gluten free: 1 cup gluten free self-raising flour)
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • Melted butter or oil to brush pan
    • Toppings of choice: we used sliced strawberries, bananas and blueberries with icing sugar dust and maple syrup!


    1. Whisk the milk and egg together in a bowl

    2. Sift the flour and sugar together into a bowl and add a pinch of salt.  Pour the egg and milk mixture together into the flour mixture.

    3. Mix well until combined.

    4. Heat up a non stick pan over media heat with a dash of oil or butter .

    5. Place tablespoons of batter onto the hot pan and flatten with a spatula

    6. Flip pikelets when bubbles start to burst on the top surface and they are golden brown.

    7. Serve with your favourite toppings of choice!




    Working hard in the Mosman Youth Centre Kitchen to bring together our fantastic recipe!
