What did you eat today? “I am asked that several times a week, usually by my grandmother. She asks me repeatedly and does not give up until she has an answer,” explains Jan, an junior scholar.

You are what you eat, and grandmothers, parents, teachers, classmates and friends are really asking how well you are. One should talk freely about eating habits. It matters that food is enjoyable to eat as well as being healthy.  To achieve that requires some knowledge and sometimes a little involvement in food preparation.

Moro Foundation has actively begun to participate in projects to raise awareness in children, teachers and parents of the importance of a healthy diet.  We are also seeking cooperation with University Medical Centre Ljubljana, University Children’s Hospital, Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. We know that healthy nutrition is an essential part of our work, our success and life. Therefore, the Foundation will support projects in schools to provide those deserving schoolchildren with good, healthy, tasty food that they like.

The quality of municipal water supplies in the majority of Slovenian towns is so good that there is no need to buy bottled drinking water. Whoever wishes to taste something other than plain water can quench thirst with unsweetened tea. One should avoid excessive consumption of fruit juice and other sweetened drinks because of the harm caused by a high sugar intake. Everyday consumption of fresh vegetables and fruits provides all the required vitamins. Locally grown organic food products are the richest sources of those nutrients and vitamins.
