Even family members can be involved, which might support primary prevention in the families.

Learning about modern food production methods will be integrated into the curriculum for the general medical students so that later, as practicing physicians, they might consciously seek to change the dietary habits of patients, as an integral part of the therapies. During the sessions in the training kitchen, the dietitians of the Dietetic Service will assist the students in selecting raw materials and foods of high quality, in choosing the appropriate kitchen technology processes, in composing diets on demand and in writing dietary diaries. Food demonstrations, tasting and cooking lessons will also be organized in the special training rooms which were opened on 11 June.
