Nutrition & Meal Preparation
The ability to plan and prepare healthy meals is essential to achieving independence. Using the Village Bistro, clients learn to prepare food for themselves and others. Perhaps just as important, they learn about proper nutrition for both body and brain. Life Skills Village therapists teach clients to make nutritious meals and snacks that are both convenient and part of a balanced diet. Clients are also encouraged to pack healthy snacks for themselves and to avoid impulse purchases that have a negative effect on their brain function (such as anything including aspartame).
