Child oriented Catering
Transnational development and testing of new educational content and methods for home economics, catering and child care
Well-balanced nutrition can be seen as an important part of health promotion. With the increase of childcare facilities throughout Europe, the demand for child oriented catering is growing. This means the need to create the foundations for healthy eating behaviour at an earlier age has never been more important.
The project aims to improve the quality of education of home economics in the field of healthy nutrition for young children.
11 partners from 7 European countries will develop practical qualifications modules for home economics teachers and child care practitioners. These modules will be tested in the education of home economists and child care staff. Trainees in home economics and child care will get additional knowledge and competencies in the field of healthy nutrition.
"Child Oriented Catering" is a project funded by the European Communities Leonardo da Vinci Programme for 2 years, between October 2006 and September 2008.
