This is Part 2 of a series, "How To Feed Our Children More Nutritiously" from an interview with Dr. Maya Adam who is a specialist in child health from Stanford's School Of Medicine. Dr. Maya Adam is a mother of three children ages 12, 9, and 7.
What are the best resources parents can use to teach themselves about cooking healthily for their family? We asked Dr. Maya Adam what she recommends to parents to use to teach themselves on how to cook more nutritiously for our children.
1. Start playing in the kitchen
2. Online Courses
Maya says: "There are awesome good online courses, not just ours but also courses from other universities that are up on open learning platforms. That’s one good way to start learning."
- Child Nutrition and Cooking
- Stanford Introduction To Food And Health
- Videos from Maya's online courses can all be seen on her Youtube channel too
