A hospital in Valdemoro creates a nursery school for feeding
The Infanta Elena Hospital in the Madrid town of Valdemoro, has set up a Food School in order to educate children in improving their eating and nutritional habits.
The good news is that this initiative will not be limited to the Hospital, but rather it intends to extend to other health centers, as well as to schools and institutes in Valdemoro and the neighboring town of Pinto, whose City Council has supported the School.
The head of this School, Javier González Valcárcel is the head of the Hospital's Pediatric Service and proposes a return to the Mediterranean diet, a diet with a predominance of slow-absorbing carbohydrates present in fruits, vegetables and legumes.
The contents of the School of Food will cover not only childhood but the entire life of the human being, from food during pregnancy, because it affects the future child, to adulthood. Another very important topic is the conservation of food that will be included in the Cooking Workshops that will be taught at the school.
Another of the topics to be discussed in the Cooking Workshop seems very interesting because it will deal with how to plan the child's weekly menu, since said menu should be designed taking into account the food they eat in the school dining room, configuring the meals at home to that together the children consume legumes once or twice a week, vegetables every day and three pieces of fruit a day.
