Nutrition students cook up a stormThursday 13 October 2016
Two nutrition students have put their learnings to good use, to help produce a recipe guide book for their fellow students.
Melissa Walker and Aisha Mustawi, worked with the University’s Student Support and Well-being team to create the 28-page booklet.
It aims to provide a nutritional guide and is packed with tips and recipes, as well as information on food groups, the traffic light label system and how to learn more about the food you eat.
The booklet has simple and straightforward dishes that even the most novice cook could whip up, and is designed to ensure students eat well and stay healthy.
Melissa Walker said: “I’m pleased with the opportunity for this work experience and think it’s great that the department was able to offer it; particularly for first year students.
“I felt that the knowledge and skills I gained had well-equipped me for this placement, as it involved research, use of specialist software and use of scientific evidence to put the booklet together.
“The highlight for me was being able to time-manage a project with another student and actually see the construction of an information booklet taking shape. To see the final copy and receive good feedback was very rewarding.”
