"Will recommend this course to all food officers or offices that are involved with food projects, school etc. Need to start with schools and child care settings to improve nutrition and food - start it whilst the children are young enough to influence. Introduce more food to children with respect to 'unusual' foods such as squash, various veg and fruit - ways to cook them to improve the nutrition of a meal".
