At 18.00 in the garden or the conference hall of the Medicine History Museum. Participation in the workshop is free of charge by registering on the website here or by phone 26644548. It is often difficult to navigate the vast amount of information to understand what diet is healthy for children and which products are better to choose so that the child’s growing body receives all the necessary nutrients. The workshop will be led by nutritionist Veronika Avdejeva who will introduce us to the school children’s menu – the basic principles of its formation, how parents and the educational institution can influence the child’s eating habits and promote healthy choices, as well as basic principles that make everyday meals easier. During the lesson, special attention will be paid to the evaluation of the composition of food products, thus promoting an understanding of their nutritional value, which will help to choose the healthiest product alternative when shopping. Participants will be able to participate in a healthy nutrition workshop – prepare and taste snacks with healthy ingredients and get inspiration for different recipes to try in their daily lives. Veronika Avdejeva is a nutritionist. Educated at Riga Stradiņš University. On a daily basis, Veronika conducts nutrition classes and master classes for both children and adults and continues to study nutrition for a master’s degree. The class will be held in Latvian. The number of participants in the workshops is limited. The event will be photographed and the photos taken during it will be published in the post about the event on the internet as well as used for publicity of the project. Workshop attendees, except for children under 12 years of age, must present a COVID certificate confirming vaccination or recovery from Covid-19, or a negative test result.
