Questioning your eating habits?

Session 1: Choose Smart, Store Right, Eat Safe: A workshop guide for mothers throughout food purchasing, handling and storage.

Serving nutritious, healthy and safe meals to your family isn’t just about your culinary skills. In fact, when preparing food, most of the time spent is on selecting products, buying ingredients, washing, cutting and storing them the right way, before the actual “cooking” starts. These initial steps are crucial so you can provide tasty meals to your kids while meeting their nutritional needs and protecting them from food poisoning.

This workshop is offered to help you throughout each step preceding the “cooking” where you will learn:

– What to choose from each food category, with respect to nutritional value, freshness, energy content and safety.

– Differences between:
o Organic and non-organic fruits and vegetables
o White, brown and double-yolk eggs
o Raw, powdered and liquid milk
o White, brown and whole-grain bread
o Fresh, frozen and canned meats
o Margarine, cooking oils and butter
o Light, low fat, sugar free and diet products

– How to test freshness of food.
– How to wash, store, refrigerate and freeze foods.
– How to read nutrition labels.
