WHO is Tasha?
Me! My name is Natasja Essed or Miss Tasha as the children call me. I have both a Master of Science and PhD degree in Human Nutrition. Inspired by the full-on sensory approach of a Dutch school-based nutrition program, I developed this curriculum and have been teaching for over10 years!
WHY participate in Tasha’s Food Fun?
I believe that food & nutrition knowledge and food preparation skills are a basic necessity for every child, including your child. The advantage of having this knowledge and skill will help turn your child into a food detective so that your child can be in charge of her or his own health, rather than being controlled by the food industry. On a more serious note: I want children to understand which foods to eat to stay healthy. That’s my goal.
The results of Tasha’s Food Fun? I have seen that children are more willing to try new foods, veggies and all! They like more foods than before the classes and eat a more varied and thus healthier diet!
Cooking & Nutrition - "Tropical Food Adventure"
Join Ms. Tasha on this hands-on Tropical Fun Food Adventure! Along the way, we will explore the origin of our ingredients, how to prepare and cook them, as well as their nutritional value. Our destination: the creation of colorful tropical dishes using our ingredients and their flavorful counterparts the spices. No previous experience is necessary.
Ms. Tasha has a Ph.D. in Human Nutrition, lived in Aruba for 10 years, and her favorite tropical foods are pineapple and passion fruit!
