Food & Nutrition Workshop at Bronx Global Learning Institute

For Girls Charter School 

Nutritional Education is extremely important, especially for children. I had the privilege of conducting an educational workshop for parent and children in elementary school. Topics of discussion included the history of food, the types of nutrients, vitamins, healthy eating and shopping tips. Eating healthy does not have to be hard. Learning what to eat and how to read labels at an early age is key to a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention.

Autism Awareness

Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a general term for a group of brain development disorders which are characterized by difficulties with behavioral and social interactions. Since some studies indicated that this may be an neuro-inflammation disease, anti- inflammatory supplements such as VITAMIN D may provide some relief. Several research groups report that vitamin D upregulates the antioxidant glutathione in the brain. Glutathione is involved in the brain detoxification process and protects nerve cells and nerve conduction critical to mental processing. Vitamin D inhibits the synthesis and biological actions of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, which are elevated in autism. The cause of autism is unclear, however studies have shown that diet plays a key role in reducing the symptoms.

Health and Wellness at M.S. 181

Getting our kids to eat a healthy diet can be challenging. Kids today do not get the proper nutrition, due to the fact that most of our food are processed and kids think of healthy eating as being boring or tasteless. We conducted a wellness workshop at a middle school in the Bronx, to teach both parents and kids about ways to increase awareness and how to making health choices. Important factors include, knowing how to read labels and look for the bad additives and preservatives in foods. We also taught them how to make fun health foods that tastes great such as flourless pancakes and fruit smoothies. Eating health can be tasty and fun!
