A diverse diet is important, but by itself does not guarantee that people get all the nutrients they need for an active and healthy life. Storage and preparation of food items are equally essential in order to "save" vitamins and minerals for human consumption.
In this short video, produced for a training on nutrition awareness in Laos, a mother shares her cooking tips with her daughter to teach her little one about proper food preparation to ensure that essential nutrients are preserved and not lost in the cooking process.
