MHM nutrition workshop for families


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.

Have you ever paid attention to where the strawberries come from when you put them in your shopping trolley in winter? How is it possible that you can find a variety of exotic fruits in the store all year round? How far have they travelled to Latvia? Do you know what vegetables, fruits and berries are typical for each season in Latvia?

The workshop will be led by nutritionist Veronika Avdejeva who will invite you to find out what sustainable nutrition means - what impact our diet and shopping habits have on the environment and what the benefits of choosing seasonal and local products are. Participants will be able to test their knowledge in a practical way, both by tasting lesser-known local vegetables, and by testing their own skills to grow something healthy at home on the windowsill.

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.

Classes are organised by Pauls Stradiņš Medicine History Museum in cooperation with SIA “OnPlate”. “MHM nutrition workshops for families” are implemented by European Social Fund project No. “Complex health promotion and disease prevention measures”.
