Workshop for MOVI Program Participants

By Luis Solano-Mora, Costa Rica


A workshop about healthy nutrition for older people was held for the older participants of the MOVI Program, in the School of Sport Sciences, Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica, located at Lagunilla, Heredia, Costa Rica, on October 16, 2009.

The workshop was focused on healthy nutrition and its importance on the aging process, and healthy lifestyles.

First, the participants received an explanation about the topics of the workshop, and then the expositor introduced concepts about healthy nutrition. The presentation was focused in three sections called: a.) Everything about fat; b.) The power of the protein; and c.) Advice to eating healthy. In every section, the older participants gave their opinions about their eating habits when they were young and also their actual eating habits. Finally, the group received examples of healthy food for a snack time.

Professionals who are involved in related areas can contact MBA Inés Revuelta (general coordinator) by e-mail at movimien@una.ac.cr.
