Nutrition Workshop - For Kids
Join us with Nutritionist Michelle Lau to learn the importance of food and how it affects our body. Each workshop will be a 40 minute session of lecture with Michelle followed by a 40 minute activity led by Chef Shima about food preparation. By the end of the course, we hope your children will have a better understanding about how food nourishes their bodies and how to make better choices even when they are not with parents or caregivers!
