Child Nutrition Classes


I know my class just ended, and I know that I am only 2 days into my break, but I already miss learning. I have always said that I am a lifelong learner, and that stands true.

Anyway, I just added a fun course to my watchlist on Coursera called Child Nutrition and Cooking.  Here is a link to the course if anyone wants to take it. Not sure when it will be offered –

About the course (from Coursera’s website)

“Eating patterns that begin in childhood affect health and wellbeing across the lifespan. In the USA, we are in the midst of a childhood obesity epidemic that threatens to leave our children with a shorter life expectancy than their parents. As processed foods become more readily available around the world, other developed nations are beginning to follow suit. This course examines contemporary child nutrition in America from the individual decisions made by each family to the widespread food marketing targeting our children.  The health risks associated with obesity in childhood are also discussed. Students will learn what constitutes a healthy diet for children and adults and how to prepare simple, delicious foods aimed at inspiring a lifelong celebration of easy home-cooked meals. This course will help prepare students to be the leading health providers, teachers and parents of the present and future.”

I am off to make individual Russian-style pies (piroshki) stuffed with potato, onions, and sauteed mushrooms.

Happy eating!
