This past St. Patrick’s Day, the Faculty of Land and Food Systems hosted an interdisciplinary collaboration for our Dietetic students and Dental Hygiene students from the Faculty of Dentistry in the Vij’s Kitchen on campus.
The guests of honour were the SuperChefs team of chefs and kids from around Metro Vancouver, coming together to learn about healthy eating and nutrition while cooking green goodies to celebrate the holiday. MasterChef Canada Champion David George was also at the event.
Each cooking station had a Dietetics student, a Dental Hygiene student, a kid and a chef from the SuperChefs program.
The highlights of the day’s activities can be seen in this video:
Prior to the day, the UBC students wrote articles on nutrition and dental health to be published in future editions of Chop Chop, a cooking magazine for families. The students presented their findings at the event.
The SuperChefs is a program founded by Dr. Greg Chang, focused on teaching kids healthy eating habits. It has since expanded to include a summer camp program at two Surrey secondary schools.
