The main purpose of the workshop was to introduce local food and scientifically approved nutritional recommendations for northern countries. It’s important to rise awareness about health when you move to another climate zone. During the activity they learned many new food items and words that are very common here. We also used Google Translate’s picturing function to understand more about what we exactly eat, and to find out does the food contain any allergens or something unwanted like pork. Another aim was to try online grocery shopping. Online grocery shopping saves a lot of time and energy if you have big family. They hadn’t heard about that before, so it was a like a woooah-experience for them.
