Finding out the whys and wherefores of nutrition. Feed your mind! is the Nestlé interactive exhibition that landed at Explora after its success at Expo Milano 2015.
The interactive exhibition was designed to explain the whys and wherefores of nutrition and unveil the secrets of the fascinating relationship between each of us and food. An interactive exhibition that guides us to understand how and why mind and body interact continuously when reacting to food stimulus and mechanisms that lead us to desire, choose, and taste what we eat every day.
Nutrition is what influences our growth and development in our first 1,000 days of life (since conception): a fundamental period for the correct development of our body and brain, where nutrition plays a key role for the health of both foetus and mother. For this reason, Explora will host, for the first time, an exhibition devoted to all family members where adults and children (from 6 years of age and up) can approach scientific themes and combine play and knowledge in a stimulating discovery experience. The space is organised in four areas focused on key themes of nutrition:
• Growth and development in our first 1,000 days of life to understand how nutrition influences pregnancy and our first two years of life;
• Hunger and satiety and the complex mechanism that influences our daily eating habits;
• The role of the senses and emotions in nutrition to understand how our senses influence food choices;
• Health and food: looking ahead with some “tailor-made” tips to counteract aging with a healthy and active lifestyle.
When: from Tuesday to Sunday, during the museum timed tours (10:00 am/12:00 pm/03:00 pm/05:00 pm), the exhibition opens 15 minutes after the visit starts and closes 15 minutes before the visit ends, admission is free.
Age:6 years and up.
How to attend: ticket price includes admission to exhibition.
