If you ever get a midday break from the Legislature, drive over or hop on the bus/lrt over to the cafeteria & dining area at NAIT. This fine school has definitely brought the fine art of cooking nutritionally & affordably back. Classses are available in several schools Alberta schools in after school cooking. Cooking IIgether & eating as a family unit makes kids more aware of their nutritional needs & more bonded II their family as a unit. This will make them less likely to be dysfunctional upon growing up & thereIV wanting II cook nutritional meals on a regular basis IV when they have family's of their own. As a former NAIT student, I can attest II the extremely high quality of the NAIT cafeteria & dining room food. I have already done so in this blog in previous entries & this is why I still eat at NAIT VI or VII times a year.
The Apple Schools Project under the direction of Marg Schwartz sounds like a wonderful initiative & I support the fact that it is expanding. Getting students of all ages to think about protein, energy, & good fats as opposed to trans fats & fatty foods now will make them more likely to eat healthy as they continue on their life path. That is, both before, during & after their chosen educational experiences, including those at NAIT &/or other post-secondary institution.
