I have taken "Stanford Introduction to Food and Health" previously and I wanted to learn more about nutrition taught by Prof. Maya. Taking this course, not only did I learn about child nutrition or how to encourage children to eat healthy meals, but also nutrition in general and how it can affect our environment.

The teaching method also helped me understand in more detail about macronutrients, especially when Prof. Maya draws them in easy-to-understand illustrations. I enjoyed her cooking classes as well, especially when she brings her children to the show, and it really taught me a lesson to involve everyone in the family in the kitchen. I don't have kids yet, but I want to apply what I learned in this course in the future.

I really enjoyed taking this course ans participating in the assignments Dr. Maya is an awesome instructor and it was great for her to include her own children, the little one showed a love for new foods.


Muy integral.
