Report on Food Vendors and School Feeding Caterers on Nutrition

Food vendors and caterers need the necessary knowledge and skills to know   some basic food nutrition. Periodic food vendors education and orientation gave the Environmental Health Officers the opportunity to also interrupt with food vendors on the need to prepare nutritious diet for customers and the students under the school feeding programme.

Nutritious diet is a food that contains all the food nutrients the body needs to function properly. The food nutrients included carbohydrate, protein, fat, vegetables, vitamins etc.

The target group for this orientation included, food vendors, caterers, cooks, food handlers, chop-bars and restaurants operators. The orientation covered the entire Ejura-Sekyedumase Municipality.
