University in Kampala so as you can imagine everyday she is excited and eager to teach our moms about nutrition. Since Peace has been with us, she has helped us improve our everyday menu for both moms and babies as well as introduced us to new ideas and more nutritious ways to prepare our foods. Everyday, alongside of our social worker Jackie, she teaches an afternoon Nutrition class where all our moms learn about food groups, the importance of vitamins and other nutrients, balancing their child's diet as well as their own, and overall health and sanitation.
One of the most exciting [as well as interactive] ideas Peace has brought to SHC is weekly Food Demonstrations with our moms. Once or twice a week she gathers all our moms around the kitchen and allows them to cook a nutritious meal for their child staying here with us. These classes are completely hands on for everyone involved. Demonstrations vary each week from, Weaning Foods, to Body Strengthening Meals, to Protein Enriched Porridge, to several others. Using only local foods and traditional cooking methods our moms are able to use what they have learned in these demonstrations from their homes.
