"Young Chef Nutrition Workshop" presented by Shanghai Disney Resort’s International Chefs Day festival is open! How much do you know about healthy food?



Bananas, broccoli, apples, carrots, oranges, spinach... Do these healthy foods often appear on your table? Especially for the growing children, they are the best nutrition choice. But how to make children love to eat healthy food?
Today, a special healthy food nutrition class begins in hangtou Primary School, Pudong New Area, Shanghai. Chefs from the Shanghai Disney FB team vividly explained the important role of healthy food for teenagers' health to nearly 100 students in the activity of "Young Chef Nutrition workshop", and carried out interesting experience activities, so that students could easily master the knowledge of nutrition and health in the fun of making and tasting healthy and delicious food by themselves.

This special presentation is also part of the celebration of International Chef's Day on 20 October. The theme of this year's chef's Day is "How healthy food works!". At the beginning of the activity, Ms. Darlene, director of Food & Beverage Operation Department of Shanghai Disneyland Resort, and Mr. Wei Pingjun, Secretary of Hangtou Primary School shared the importance of nutritious and healthy life with the students. Later, Chef Alan Orreal, Culinary Director of Shanghai Disneyland Resort, introduced the history of International Chef’s Day and this year's theme to the students, and shared his chef dream.

Look, the students at the scene can listen carefully!
