Abstract

Healthy eating is a key element to a healthy life, it is crucial to good health and it is part of a correct lifestyle. Professionals in Nutrition Science, Health Care and Culinary Arts share their expertise and findings in nutritional studies during the conference “Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives®”, and have recently built a network named the Teaching Kitchen Collaborative. During the Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives educational meeting, faculty members from Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School, and other leading institutions provide the state of the science on diet and nutrition, exercise, mindfulness practice, behavioral change strategies and health coaching. In sum, this conference offers the opportunity to learn about foods that can reduce the risk for health problems, about strategies to fight obesity and ways to replace unhealthy habits. It also includes practical cooking demonstrations intended to translate the relevant science. This conference also provides health professionals with practical advice for their patients. In addition, the new “Teaching Kitchen Collaborative”, also developed by faculty from Harvard and the Culinary Institute, may lead to the development of a research network whereby this information and these skills are routinely offered to the lay public.
