European Day of Healthy Food and Cooking, November 8th

The European Commission has joined forces with Euro-toques (ET), the European association of chefs, to teach European children about the importance of eating a balanced diet.

By organising fun workshops with top-level chefs in several European countries, the aim is to develop an interest amongst European children in healthy eating and cooking.

The European Day of Healthy Food and Cooking aims to raise awareness of the impact that teaching children the basic principles of good nutrition can have.

Habits start young. If children learn to enjoy cooking, eat healthily and exercise regularly from an early age, they are much more likely to continue such practices in adulthood.

This, in turn, could contribute to lowering obesity levels in Europe, as the adults of the future would be more aware of the need for a balanced diet and physical activity.
