Nutritional Cooking Training Workshop for Chefs

The "" campaign promotes healthy eating to children and the school lunch caterers play an important role of it.

To equip chefs and staff of school lunch caterers involved in recipe design and development with a better understanding of the nutritional requirement of school children, and to develop their skills in designing recipes for healthy school lunch, the Department of Health (DH) has organised the "Nutritional Cooking Training Workshop for Chefs" since August 2007.
