Jennifer at Portland Health Coaching, LLC is passionate about eradicating our nation’s health epidemic through education. She believes in the importance of guiding school children towards healthier habits through simple food education such as cooking classes and workshops.
The following pictures are of the Nutritional Education Day workshop hosted by The Gourmetour in a South Bronx public school. Jennifer exposed the kindergartners to exotic fruit such as pineapple and pomegranate, taught knife safety, and age-appropriate recipes. Following the workshop Jennifer lectured the student’s parents on topics such as how to read food labels, ingredient lists, and how to navigate grocery stores.
The Gourmetour would like to thank Ms. Balough and the school for letting us into her classroom, the American Print+Copy Center on Broadway Avenue on the Upper West Side for donating the printed educational resources for parents, a critical component of the workshop, and to the parents and all of the supporters that made this workshop a success.
