The Doctor Yum Project is a new nonprofit started by pediatrician Nimali Fernando, MD MPH, who started doctoryum.com in 2011. Our nonprofit, now with an enthusiastic board of directors, has outlined a mission - partnering with families to raise children who eat a healthy whole food diet.
We are now offering FREE shopping classes at two Fredericksburg VA grocery stores. The class is aimed at showing families how to get organized and save money while preparing healthy dishes. Classes are now offered twice a month.
In August, we offered our first cooking camp for kids, called "Doctor Yum's Cooking Adventure" for kids ages 7-12. Kids enjoyed a daily nutrition lesson, tastings, cooking skills and preparation of healthy plant-based recipes from around the world. Stay tuned as we develop new classes. We hope to offer our next class once a week after school.
Information on Shopping and Cooking Classes can be found on our website www.doctoryumproject.org.
