城中鏡:陳東千金推動飲食革命

相信年紀有番咁上下嘅香港人,仲記得以前有位名廚叫陳東,經常上電視向觀眾講解不同食材烹調方法嘅食療效用。陳東師傅已喺十多年前過身,但原來佢囡囡Beatrice陳嘉惠承繼咗爸爸嘅遺志,成立咗個組織推動健康天然飲食。最近Beatrice仲同著名英國靚仔名廚Jamie Oliver合作,喺香港推動飲食革命。

提倡天然健康飲食嘅Jamie Oliver,近年喺全球發起「為食起革命」,包括訂出下周五(五月十六日)做「為食革命日」,發動不同國家及城市嘅識食人士,喺當日一齊製作同一味菜式「彩虹沙律卷」,佢喺香港嘅合作組織,就係Beatrice創辦嘅go.asia。Beatrice尋日就喺一個商場內,向香港嘅志同道合者公開示範點做呢道菜。

Beatrice話城市人日常享用嘅食物,好多都係經過人為加工,例如成分根本冇橙嘅橙味汽水,冇檸檬嘅檸檬味蛋糕等,呢啲食品嘅色香味全靠化學調校而來,經常食用對身體肯定有不良影響,現代人唔少病痛可能都係因此而來,呼籲港人為咗自己健康着想,喺飲食上必須懂得選擇。

Hong Kong’s Food Education Program – Think.Cook.Save.
Thu 07 Nov 2013
Story by Beatrice Chan

Living in a city allows us to rely heavily on fast food and processed food. In Hong Kong, children grow up in the culture of fast food restaurants, supermarkets and convenience stores, just like many other places in the world. Every day after the school bell rings, you will see all the happy faces running to the nearby fast food place to get their deep-fried chicken wings, sausages and fish Siu Mai (which is supposed to be steamed fish dumpling, but the ingredients contain no fish, only chemical additives and preservatives). They choose what they eat by convenience and savour, strong savour.

城市人常依賴快餐及加工食物。香港的孩子也不例外,伴隨他們成長的是快餐店、超級市場及便利店。

Think.Cook.Save. Health & Food Education

I truly believe a healthy body is the prerequisite for children to graduate from schools and to achieve their dreams. The food education program I designed and launched in Hong Kong named “Think.Cook.Save. Health & Food Education” is aimed to provide free and quality basic food education to our primary and secondary students.

The program includes an interactive presentation and cooking demonstration with lots of student participation so that the students can acquire basic cooking techniques. The program will enable them to tell the difference between processed food and real food, as well as how to choose healthy food for themselves. In addition, students will also learn the “FOOD” concept, designing balanced meals with five grains, organic fruits & vegetable, omega‐3 & protein and water.

健康的身體是兒童長大後追尋夢想的最重要元素。我.惜.食.健康飲食教育計劃的出現是希望為中、小學兒童提供免費及優質的飲食教育。通過活動、遊戲及烹飪示範,學童認識到健康食物及加工食物的分別,掌握到選擇食物的基本知識及基本煮食技巧。當中的食物概念更讓他們輕易地挑選每餐的均衡飲食食物組合。

Our target: 70 schools & a book

For the first year, our team will work with 70 schools and will publish a Health and Food Education Kit. Through the Education Kit, we hope parents, teachers or any interested volunteers can provide quality health & food education to children, or even adults, around them. Knowing our food is the first step to improve our quality of life.

Thanks to our partners, Chef Alvina Chan and Towngas Cooking Centre, the program so far runs quite well. Also, I need to thank Etpress for publishing the education kit for us and Skypost as our media partner for helping spread the words.

特別鳴謝合作伙伴陳彥琳小姐 (琳琳) 及媒氣烹飪中心的全力協助及支持。經濟日報出版社為我們出版教育書籍及晴報成為我們的媒體伙伴。

An action of a 5 year-old boy

I have included my friend and her family to one of our previous programs, which is a fun cooking day with underprivileged families, and the other day she told me: “I am so grateful you have invited us to join the program. My boy asked for water today instead of soda, and he went to his room to count the coins he saved in his piggy bank. He told me he wants to give half of his savings to the people in need.” This is the reason and motive for me to keep going!
