Partnering with ProyectoCAN to fight malnutrition

how to make complete protein
how to make complete protein

It has been an amazing pleasure to work with Andrea Guzman from Proyecto CAN. Andrea is a nutritionist who has helped develop wonderful nutrition workshops, recipe books and videos. Andrea came to Chuk Muk and did excellent workshops on basic nutrition with 6 different groups.

The main focus of these workshops was creating easy, nutritious and economical foods for babies and young children. Malnutrition is a huge problem in this area and part of the time was spent on items not to buy with their limited resources like cabonated sodas, highly processed snacks and giving coffee to young children. Andrea also taught 2 of our students how to run future workshops. Two of our students, Rosa and Miriam, translated the information into Tzu’tujil for the moms that do not understand Spanish. Everyone had a lot of fun cooking low cost, healthy food at our learning centre. All attendees returned home with a bright informative cook book and chaya plants. Many of the women cannot read so the book used pictures which the moms easily followed during the cooking portion of the workshop.
