CHEEP: Cooking healthy european paths

The project CHEEP (Cooking Healthy European Paths) comes from the idea to develop and enrich a very useful and positive experience promoted by the Italian Research Council (CNR) with the collaboration of IPSSEOA “Pietro Piazza” of Palermo, the biggest catering vocational school in Southern Italy.
During the year 2018, in fact, after having observed data about children affected by health problems related to specific dietary needs, CNR promoted the activation of the project DADO (acronym of Diet, Allergy, Diabetes and Obesity) to inform and teach families with children suffering from these diseases, to adopt a correct dietary style to face these pathologies. DADO project provided several theoretical and practical classes where scientific experts and chefs met families to provide knowledge and tools to live “cooking” as a pleasant moment. They shared useful suggestions on how to deal with special dietary needs without losing the pleasure to eat tasty food. Moreover, the project promoted the idea to rediscover and redesign, with a new healthy approach, traditional dishes, demonstrating that limits are often a challenging starting point to explore and find new possibilities. This excellent experience arose the desire to create a wider partnership including the University of Palermo (UNIPA) and three foreign partners.

Teachers will be trained during the first part of the project through webinars and meetings arranged and issued by CNR. Afterwards teachers will train students, providing professional competences through real, learning-by-doing practices and ICTbased methodologies increasing motivation and satisfaction. Good practices will be socialized among schoolteachers and students, planning activities to share experiences for an interpersonal professional development in a dynamic environment.
Moreover, the creation of a system of recognition and validation of this new students profile, both for professional and transversal skills, describing and defining qualifications in terms of learning outcomes, would greatly encourage entrepreneurship and increase opportunities for employability at local, national or international level. Besides, CNR studies and results, could reach greater effectiveness and echo for the benefit of local, regional, national and international communities, in particular for those families whose children suffer from these diseases and whose socio-economic or cultural condition doesn’t produce a correct approach to support their children needs. The creation of a free open multimedia and multi-language digital book in Augmented Reality, developed with the collaboration of the Institute for Didactic Technologies (ITD) of the CNR, containing suggestions and clear, simple, attracting recipes with explanatory videos for their correct realization, will be an effective tool to support families and children, with the possibility to add new contents even after the project conclusion.

CHEEP Kick-off Meeting

The meeting, attended by all the organizations involved, has kicked off the project activities, the creation of working groups and the definition of each partner’s roles and tasks. In particular, the partners have planned the activities related to both the “Assessment of knowledge, attitude and perception in the field of healthy cooking” (O1) and the constitution of a scientific committee to plan the training activities and their contents (O2). Webinars (O3) to increase the knowledge and skills of teachers from participating schools were scheduled. The lead organization has shared Partner Agreements with all the partners involved in the project.

PROGRAM

Objectives

  • IO1. Evaluation of Knowledge, attitude and perception in the field of healthy cooking;
  • IO2. School professional development of Pilot Training Course in Healthy Cooking;
  • IO3. Healthy cooking webinar for teachers;
  • IO4. Recipes and multimedia contents for healthy cooking book and short-term mobility;
  • IO5. Healthy cooking book in Augmented Reality

IRIB coordinates O3. The purpose of O3 is to train the teachers selected by the partners of the schools involved, through a webinar, developed and delivered by a scientific committee, made up of experts in the medical and health sector. The webinar will train and provide cooking and food science teachers with the theoretical knowledge and scientific knowledge necessary to promote and develop healthy cooking. The contents of the webinar will allow teachers to increase their knowledge and skills in order to develop the specialized pilot course (O2) addressed at students of the last three years of the professional schools involved.
