Welcome to the Food Nature Lab
About Food Nature Lab
Dr Tanja Sobko is an expert in the fields of nutrition and healthy lifestyle interventions. She has over 20 years worth of University Research Experience. Her studies have lead her to focus on how we can adopt healthier lifestyles and the connection between Nature and Health.
We encourage people to adopt healthier lifestyles and understand the influence our food choices have on our environment.
We present our ongoing exciting short projects where we conduct research and get very interesting results. Based on this, we wish to share with you our latest findings. We have 2 short projects that we are working on for preschoolers. We are creating recipe and activity videos for vegetables in the alphabet and tips for early healthy routines.
Early environmental education for preschool children. Our research shows that children who eat healthier and are more active will succeed in life.
Food, Environment & Health
Hands on experiential learning for University Students. It is a cross-disciplinary exploration of the environmental, socio-economic, public health and personal nutrition contexts of food systems. The course focuses on how our food choices influence the environment, how the environment impacts our diet and health and what actions can improve these interactions.
Nutrition & Sports
The course will firstly examine the physiological needs pre-, during and post-competition and/or habitual exercise to perform at its best. Secondly, it will investigate how and why nutrient and energy intakes vary between different athlete groups, the difference between energy metabolism and requirements during aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
