This course is immensely informative, as well as fun! I loved the way Maya made things simple, with diagrams to accompany all of the the nutrition information. I hope she does more courses like these!
Very informative. The presentation style was easy to follow. Loved the art work. Quiz at the end of each segment was relevant to topics presented. Recipes are easy to follow and very child friendly.
Dr. Adam is a very engaging and pleasant presenter and I learned a lot. Only comment is the Nutrition Label video in Week 5 is outdated as the new label now includes information about added sugars.
