TOP REVIEWS FROM CHILD NUTRITION AND COOKING
I am a trained chef, and I learned so much more about nutrition in general, even though the information is geared toward cooking healthful meals for children. So excited to share my new knowledge!
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 Only comment is the Nutrition Label video in Week 5 is outdated as the new label now includes information about added sugars.
easy to follow and toy can complete the whole thing (minus if you were following along to the recipes) in less than a day the loss of a star is due to the fact that i thought it would take longer
I enjoyed taking this course. I have learned several *new* things about buying, preparing and cooking food. The videos are straight-forward and the content is presented in a clear and concise way.
