As a mother and chef I pay close attention to the food I present to my children and my audience. It’s important to prevent all diseases. Our body needs calcium and other nutrients in order to keep strong and healthy bones. We should not neglect our bone health. Let’s cook nutritious and delicious dishes. Bone Appétit!
