Comer en familia

We empower mothers to become change agents in their communities. We support their development through the implementation of healthy eating habits and childhood development to improve the health of their families.

Empowered Development

In Comer en Familia we foster knowledge and capacities by driving the development of their children through healthy habits.

Mothers are a fundamental axis in the family unit. We invest in training and empowering them with biweekly workshops imparted in fifteen food banks that teach various subject such as: health, nutrition and healthy cooking. They replicate and apply this knowledge in their homes to improve the nutrition and health of their children and their loved ones.

Experiment to learn

We based Comer en Familia on a pschyeducational and constructiviste methodology created by Universidad de Monterrey in which mothers and caretakers learn through personal experiences. UDEM trains the food banks (BAMX) and upholds the monitoring and evaluation of the results.

BAMX has a manual for the courses and it includes a description of the recipies and narrative techniques to encourage action and participation. In addition, mothers receive a recipe book where they can add the learned recipes during each session. In this way, they adquire knowledge and spread it in their homes and with other people.

Food for the future

In the workshops, we train mothers in healthy and balanced eating habits with healthy, economical and practical recipes based on vegetables that the Food Bank of Mexico receives. We promote quality time within their families in order to strengthen their own personal bond with family members. We encourage mothers to prepare food and share a meal together in the company of their loved ones.
