For the first workshop, « eating habits », about 10 pupils were gathered in a classroom where 4 University students called Jinna, Elina, Mari and Meiji lead their intervention about eating habits. It started with a game during which the students had to classify words about eating habits into 2 groups : the healthy ones and the unhealthy ones. Then, the 4 University students presented every eating moment of the day : breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner and evening snack and advice was given to the pupils about how to eat healthy food in a healthy way.
