Building trust in food – educational workshops dedicated to school children led by the representatives of the food industry (Maspex) and scientists from the Polish Academy of Sciences (Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research).
During workshops, pupils and teachers will learn the newest information concerning nutritional recommendations. Participants will discuss with experts “The Food Pyramid” which was designed to make healthy eating easier. One of the goals of the workshop is to explain that healthy eating is about getting the correct amount of nutrients – protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Moreover, workshops will provide pupils with knowledge on commonly used laboratory food tests. There will be also time for learning food facts in an unconventional way during solving puzzles in the escape room game.
In the final stage of the workshops, participants will take part in a quiz, assessing their understanding of the information presented.
