Participants will learn what constitutes a healthy diet for children and adults and how to prepare simple, delicious foods aimed at inspiring a lifelong celebration of easy home-cooked meals. This course will help prepare participants to be the leading health providers, teachers and parents of the present and future.The text and other material in this course may include the opinion of the specific instructor and are not statements of advice, endorsement, opinion, or information of Stanford University.

Great course for Americans and for beginners who didn't cook at all.

In other countrys there are different product labels (and not only in language), different supplies, different common ways to cook.

So for me the course provides just two helpful ideas:

1) nutrition preparation is a kind of care ritual and good habit in family. It's quite important socially.

2) cooking is not just doing receipe steps. Everyone can cook and be inventive.

The course is very basic for the most part. She did share some recipes that sounded good. Overall I feel like the class is designed for people who don't know anything about nutrition and don't really have time to prep meals. I did learn a bit though.

Easy to do, and it was nice to be able to spend as much or as little time on it as I wanted. I could leave it for weeks at a time when I was more involved in other MOOCs. Found it entertaining at times and annoying at other times -- a bit on the flaky side for me.

This was a great introduction to food and nutrition. I have a toddler and I’m always worri d he said not eating enough or eating the right kinds of food. This course really helped me see how to entice him to try new thing so in exciting dishes. There I should also an emphasis on seeing the family dining together as Ann important social exercise. I finished the class very quickly but I still learned a lot. I’d recommend this class to anyone, especially families with young children.

Actually i have not started the course yet but i think it is very interesting plus people should have some knowledge of what they eat daily and what they give to their child.
