Learning About Nutrition

The hands-on cooking experience provided participants with the opportunity to apply what they had learnt from the experts in nutrition, Mount Alvernia Hospital’s dieticians, in the earlier segment of the programme.

Cooking Up A Healthy Storm

To up the excitement level of this Little Day Outing, a competition element was included in the cooking segment. The completed food items were judged on criteria such as nutrition, creativity and presentation, and teamwork.

Participants enjoyed the family bonding and teamwork as they worked together to cook nutritious food.
