These facilities are the right place where families and their children can learn how to cook healthy and delicious food, said the Minister for the Family, Katharina Binz (Greens). It’s also about organizing the time we spend together.

“Family life shapes the health awareness of children and young people, and family meals are of great importance,” said Climate Protection Minister Katrin Eder (Greens), who is also responsible for nutrition. . The type of feed can help protect the climate, the minister said, noting the emission of greenhouse gases in livestock farming and the large amount of land needed to grow animal feed.

“We all know that meat consumption also has something to do with climate change,” Eder said. “But we’re not saying everyone has to be a vegetarian or a vegan now. We’re trying to figure out how it’s all connected.” The ministry is following the recommendations of the German Nutrition Society (DGE).

“Parents have to accompany us, that’s an experience we’ve had,” said AOK Rhineland-Palatinate/Saarland board representative Udo Hoffmann. He is convinced that parents are becoming more and more involved in the family kitchen.

Course providers can set their own priorities with a choice of 20 thematic modules. It’s supposed to start in August.
