During 27th November – 4th December celebrated Researchers’ Night with EIT Food. On this occasion, researchers from IARFR PAS conducted a series of 15 online lectures for over 300 schoolchildren and 17 teachers. The lectures prepared within the EIT Food #AnnualFoodAgenda project addressed the most interesting topics in the area of food, nutrition and health.
The lectures were a source of knowledge, inspiration and covered the most current topics related to healthy eating and sustainable consumer behaviours. School students and their teachers learnt about the bacteria that inhabit our intestines and the ways we can strengthen our immune system with food. We checked when we should follow a gluten-free diet and took a closer look at the facts and myths about the quality of farm fish. We got an insight into one of the most serious diseases of the 21st century – obesity – and saw if fatty tissue can devour calories!
An interactive session was also held, where the students could engage in a discussion with researchers and test the knowledge gained in kahoot-based quizzes. Winners –top 45 players – were awarded prizes.
