Many schools are providing nutrition education! The goal is to help young people develop healthy eating habits by focusing on pleasure and by providing them with positive experiences. Sunnyside, Stanstead’s Anglophone school, understood this and is following suit. In February, school workers will receive training from the Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) in order to be better equipped to carry out the nutrition education program. Then, children and parent volunteers will be able to take part in cooking workshops, a fun way to learn and get hands-on experience together.
In Potton, the Nutrisanté Committee plans once again to host five workshops during the school year. This long-standing commitment is sure to be beneficial and have a positive influence on the lifestyle habits of many children!
At La Ruche, students will soon get to try out a new format for the cooking workshops. We’re betting this time that teenagers will show interest in this activity if it’s hosted by real chefs from our area! The latter will be trained by the Tablée des Chefs as part of its culinary workshop program for teenagers.
By increasing the number of opportunities young people of all ages have to develop nutritional skills, we’re giving every child a chance to make choices that will allow him or her to adopt a healthy diet.
