Communication “I Know About Food and I Choose to Eat Well: Learning Capsules for Gaining Knowledge About My Diet,” is the project approved by the UACh Directorate of Environmental Liaison.
This initiative was presented by Dr. Javier Parada S., Academician at the Institute of Food Science and Technology (ICYTAL) of the School of Agricultural and Food Sciences at UACh. The project’s alternate director is the Principal of the School of Pedagogy in Basic Education, Puerto Montt headquarters, Mg. Alpina Cifuentes.
The aim is to contribute to the training of children in basic education to generate in them a positive propensity to consume healthy foods, “based on the idea that they know, understand and assimilate the advantages of adequate nutrition, so that they can independently choose to have good eating habits”, explained Professor Parada, Director in charge about the project.
Likewise, it takes into account the preparation of audio-visual materials and the holding of “workshops” with the participation of students from the profession of UACh pedagogy mentioned above. This material will focus on introducing the true characteristics, stories, and value of “healthy” foods to health. All this taking into account obesity and health problems that afflict people today.
The project also contains a financial contribution from the Environmental Relations Unit of this college.
