Day 2 and the team visited a nutrition-friendly state primary school in Aydin, where the partners sat down with the principle and took part if activities with some of the pupils.
For lunch, the parents of the pupils prepared some delicious, traditional Turkish food and then took part in a traditional Turkish dance class.
Day 3 and the final day of the transnational meeting in Aydin. The team attended a workshop learning about diet and nutrition as well as cooking new healthy meals. The group enjoyed a cooking class and an in-depth presentation from a specialist dietitian.
