Last Saturday I was happy to conduct an educational session to a group of mothers and families of the city of Lanus, as a volunteer (and recipient of a mini-grant) for Kids Eat Right. Kids Eat Right is an educational campaign of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation to promote educational projects that address the problems of overweight and obesity in children. Also, there is an international chapter called Kids Eat Right International (KERI) that carries the goals of the campaign to a global level by providing international educational resources for professionals in each country, contributing to better nutrition for children in the world.
The topic of the session was Tossed Treasures: How Can We All Waste Less Food from the initiative The Future of Food. I have adapted the Spanish version of the toolkit presentation to the Argentinean audience. It was great to help many attendees who didn’t know how to use a thermometer in the kitchen, and was very fun to see how they created healthy recipe ideas with leftovers!
If interested in having the Argentinean adapted presentation, let me know!
