After the success of the Veggies4myheart project, lead by Cátia Pontes, and its recognition as the best national project of the year in the category of Community nutrition and public health, the digital and didactic game can now be found in a book version, called “Who wants to go to the village market?”.
The february 15 was the chosen day to present the book at ciTechCare, a ceremony that counted on several researchers and other professionals that wanted to know more about the way this project is contributing to promote the consumption of vegetables in preschool children and increase health literacy.
The story was written by Maria de Fátima Martins, Beatriz Nogueira, Joyce Zanker and Guilherme Moreira, professionals and students in the field of nutrition and is available in some local kindergarten schools, in Leiria.
Marlene Lages, Miguel Oliveira, Maria José Gamboa, Cristina Nobre and Eduarda Abrantes were in charge of the technical and scientific review and Diana Domingues was responsible for the book illustration.
Due to the support of the Leiria City Council, was possible to deliver this illustrative and pedagogic book in all Kindergarten schools of the municipality of Leiria.
