This course is immensely informative, as well as fun! I loved the way Maya made things simple, with diagrams to accompany all of the the nutrition information. I hope she does more courses like these!

Very useful nutritional and food information structured with care, combined with common sense advice to apply in every household.
The whole package is served with delicate ambient music, practical recipes and kitchen advices, and last but not least, with love towards children and family.
One might find inside some controversial aspects as maybe too much frying, cooking in aluminium foil presumed to be bad, using sugar when cooking, but everyone is free to adapt the content to his own perceptions, fears and style. The main philosophy proposed, the moderation, is a keeper though.
I just loved taking this course

This course was very educational. Maya was great at explaining healthy foods and ingredients that her own family uses at home. I was incorporating her suggestions while taking this course. I'm working to include less processed foods and more fresh fruits and veggies in my families diet. I even started to make fruit/veg smoothies for my 8 year old daughter instead of buying her the 100 % juice I bought in the store as a way to provide her with more vegetables in her diet as well as less processed food. Great course! I will be looking for more courses to take that include Maya and her wonderful children.

Felicidades Maya, me encantó el curso. Muy claro, organizado, completo, práctico y con recetas sencillas.
Me gustó la forma simple de explicar los temas difíciles como química, biología.
No me pareció muy coherente que quitaran el almidón de la pasta y después la volvieran añadir en polvo en la receta de spaguetti.
Está focalizada para poblaciones de 1er mundo con acceso a servicios de calidad (luz, agua pura, colegios, hospitales de calidad) y productos órganicos (consomé) ... haría falta un curso climatizado para latinoamérica , de hecho es necesario, cuentan conmigo para ayudar.

This is a very inspirational course, where you are always looking forward to learning something new in regards to child nutrition.
Cooking demonstrations are excellent, very simple guidelines and easy to understand and try out for example i always thought preparing chicken nuggets was a nightmare....thank you so much for making it easy for one to learn and understand.
One of the other key issues learned here is involving the children in some gardening, grocery purchases, meal preparation, which infact is a way of getting their minds set to eating well and healthy.

This is the best course I've ever did on Coursera (and the only one that I've successfully completed so far!). The instructor is very practical and to the point in her explanations. Each session was very engaging and i appreciate the time taken for her to create the live/animated graphics. This never felt like a boring regular classroom session, most of them were shot in her kitchen, which kept the learner engaged. The tips and the cooking sessions are awesome. I don't have a kid yet, but will surely come back to this course when i have one. Kudos :-)

It was a great course! Nice setup, very detailed ad Dr. Maya is a great communicator! However the reality is that we do not need to eat and animal product, that's what the research studies are showing especially this last decade the overwhelming evidence is that animal products, added oil, sugar and salt is bed for our health!... Dr. Maya did explain that especially processed junk food is not good for us... Animal products are just not good for humans as well! Also I'm not being able to get my Certificate, the internet app doesn't work!

Very good contents and lecturer. It motivates me prepare healthy and tasty foods for my children. My children are very picky eater and so hard to get them to eat vegetables and healthy food since small. They are big now and it's even more difficult to encourage them since they want all the tasty food only and not healthy. But, nevertheless I always remind them to take vege and fruits.
Ok that's all. Thank you.
p/s: I like the cover songs "Photograph" that you share in the email sometime ago. So touching and sweet esp from the cover singer.

For me personally, I felt this course was a great way to reiterate what I generally already knew in terms of nutrition. It's always great to have a refresher of this stuff in general. Although I don't have children yet, I loved Maya Adam's way of simplifying ways to get children more involved and excited about meals. I have a niece and nephew that we watch for a night some weekends and it's great to have this knowledge that I can use with them. Overall, the course was fast and insightful and very easy to do. I'm glad I chose this course!

Everyone should learn about food and nutrition, not only for the kids, but yourself. This course is good for everyone, not only parents and kids.
I wish the course would touch on how to deal with kids who already developed a picky food habit for parents to change the kid's food habit.
However, I will still highly recommend this course to all of you. It is only 5 weeks, videos are short yet very informative and knowledgeable. The most important thing is, all the nutrition tips and recipes can be easily practice and cook at home.

Como nutricionista, considero que es bastante completo, no se necesitan estudios universitarios previos y es una buena forma de entender la importancia de la nutrición en niños, teniendo en consideración los aspectos biosicosociales que rodean el proceso de alimentación.

Este curso esta muy bien estructurado en cuanto a la información que debemos conocer para entender como presentarles los alimentos a nuestros hijos y adicionalmente tiene recetas que podemos incluir en nuestro dia a dia y por último, comprender como llega a nosotros "la comida procesada", como debemos interpretar la información nutricional de los productos y saber tomar la mejor decisión en la alimentación de nuestra familia. Muchas gracias me encantaron los tips a la hora de sentarse con los niños a cenar juntos.☺

Excelebte curso, como madre me hizo reflexionar sobre tantos aspectos de nuestra vida diaria y alimentación, la selección de alimentos, nuestro impacto en el medio ambiente, bienestar y economía familiar, y otros tantos más, ahora, cuando sirvo la comida evalúo las cantidades de proteínas, verduras, cereales, procurando también consumir nuestra porción diaria de frutas, dándole color a cada plato como una obra de arte, seleccionando siempre lo más fresco y sano para mí familia, gracias por tan valiosa información!..

Since I was a child I liked to help my mom and my grandmother to cook. They taught me to cook and I learned the traditions of the family. My two younger children were picky eaters, and at the beginning it was very tough to prepare food for them. Now we enjoy together to prepare and eat different types of food. We love our traditional food, but we are always looking for new recipes. This course teaches me how to combine different types of ingredients to bring to our table, every day, more balanced and healthy food.

I have enrolled in many classes on coursera, but can not finished any of them. Because they all get boring at the end. Its my 1st course that I have finished. Because from first to last, this course remain interesting to me and got no chance to be bored. M. Adam is the best course instructor to me till now (I wish I could do her classes live) because she knows how to teach on MOOC. This course is no only interesting but also highy educative. This course should start give certificate of accomplishment. Thank You :)

Excelente. La información es clara y se expresa en un lenguaje fácil de comprender.
Tiene recomendaciones maravillosas para empezar a tener mejores prácticas y hábitos alimenticios en casa con nuestros hijos y además, ofrece recetas prácticas, sencillas y atractivas para toda la familia.
Se enfoca mucho en el impacto ambiental que tiene la producción de los alimentos que consumimos y en ese sentido, nos invita a ser más conscientes y respetuosos con el ambiente y nuestro organismo desde la alimentación en casa.

Excelente curso con una maravillosa y didáctica manera de enseñar la mejor forma de crear hábitos de alimentación positivos y sostenibles para los niños y la familia en su totalidad. Las advertencias y las recomendaciones para realizar compras en el supermercado son alarmantes y fundamentales para hacer compras conscientes y orientadas a consolidar una nutrición adecuada, estimular el consumo de productos naturales producidos en nuestras comunidades y de temporada fortalece la economía familiar y regional.

I enjoyed this course very much. This has helped me understanding many basic things about food and what is important for my kids. There are many little helpful tips. As a working mother with 2 little kids, it's so much better to have seen these videos of "simple cooking", than watching cook shows in TV that make cooking so complicated (by learning nothing) and tiring. Thanks for this great course and your effort in improving the health of kids of the world! Best regards, Huiyan Roy, a Chinese German mother

The material was easy to use, great download options specially for the recipes (So I can watch them again while cooking in the kitchen)
Questions were a little bit too easy sometimes but summed up the main subject of each week
It was really nice and soothing to see a doctor telling parents that we have to follow some common sense principles, not a bible of nutrition and cooking for children by the letter
And THANK YOU for the Nutella, I don't buy it anyway but it shows that it's not that bad...in moderation

Good nutrition impacts our children and grandchildren's health over the course of their lifetimes. This course covers all aspects of child nutrition, including the sourcing of our food and our impact on the environment.
I have read the book "Cooked" by Michael Pollan, which was listed as one of the recommended readings. Thank you for recommending it. It likely would never had crossed my path otherwise, and it is such an influential book.
Thank you for bringing us into your home and family!

I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to increase their knowledge about family nutrition and healthier eating habits. I was surprised to learn many new facts about areas that I hadn't previously considered that impact our families' health and well-being - e.g. The Community and State layers. I love the combination of cooking, nutrition knowledge, environmental expertise / insight and practical, easy to follow tips throughout the course. Thank you!

Спасибо большое за возможность пройти курс "Питание детей и приготовление пищи". Было очень интересно и я взяла много полезного для себя. Замечательные лекции восхищают своей неординарностью: впервые попадаю во время занятий к преподавателю на кухню, знакомлюсь с её дружной и большой семьёй, вижу её во время приготовления различных блюд. Всё это сразу же располагает к доверию и вниманию, оставляет след в сердце! Отдельный восторг от графики и подачи опорного конспекта по отдельным темам!

This course was very interesting and informative, without intimidating you with the new information. Going through the material, I realized that healthy eating is a habit that can be taught from a young age and that it is an easy lifestyle to achieve for parents. As an educator and a nutrition enthusiast, I really hope I can use the information from this course to teach (and learn along) children about the joy and creativity of healthy eating and cooking. Thank you very much Dr. Maya!

Fue un verdadera experiencia y satisfacción lograr estos conocimientos que humanamente me fueron compartidos por tan magistral Instructora. Me encanta mucho en conocer acerca de una buena alimentación y lo más valioso es reconocer que esto debería generarse a manera de cultura dentro de la curricula de educación básica y con talleres para Madres, Padres y Tures.
Me interesa obtener el Certificado. Mi duda es cuál es su costo en pesos Méxicanos?.
Gracias, Gracias. Gracias.

Very informative. Provides lots of really useful information that you can then apply directly to your every day life. I've learned a lot about food and how to easily make better, healthier, choices for my family and I. The cooking demos are wonderful and I've made several of them which turned out delicious. The professor provides a lot of every day information that you can and will actually use and be able to apply to your life. Wonderful course and I highly recommend.
