Estuvo increíble, aprendí la importancia de la comida integral y sus consecuencias en la salud de los niños, así como el impacto que puede tener en ello ya siendo adultos.La expositora me encantó sus platicas fueron cortas sencillas para aquellas personas que no somos expertos de la salud.Gracias I really like the set up of this program The course is good, but it is incredibly basic.

Igualmente la forma en que se puede cocinar para los niños y adultos.

Excelente oportunidad para conocer más de la alimentación que los niños necesitan.

Es un gran material informativo, trae consigo una variedad de argumentos que hace convincente dicho material y ademas de eso hace reflexionar a la comunidad porque se toma un objeto fundamental para la sociedad y sobretodo para los padres, los niños.

Excelente curso con una maravillosa y didáctica manera de enseñar la mejor forma de crear hábitos de alimentación positivos y sostenibles para los niños y la familia en su totalidad.

Excelente curso para introducirte al conocimiento de cómo cocinar sanamente y mejorar la nutrición de los niños.

Aportaron muchas ideas de cómo realizar recetas que son aptas para los niños sin embargo, también son completas y saludables para los adultos.
