Professor Sumatra Ray: Being Good, Doing Good, and Feeling Good The Sunny Side of Life with Troy Thompson

    • Society & Culture

This week we welcome to Sunnyside, Professor Sumatra Ray, MD/Registered Nutritionist; Director of Research in Food Security, Health and Society, University of Cambridge.

Troy met Dr. Ray (and his amazing daughter - Nikki) in the hotel lobby while visiting Washington, DC and we're glad he did. Let's dive into worldwide nutrition issues and solutions. What if we were to scientifically re-imagine the local recipes of the world to achieve the best taste and nutritional value? Learn about the double burden of malnutrition, micronutrient deficiency also known as "hidden hunger", what is the body's "training weight", metabolic health, and pictorial recipes.

Meet Nikki, the Junior Ambassador who's ideas for getting children involved worldwide with nutrition via the Mobile Teaching Kitchen, the Kids Kitchen Club Challenge, the Little Literacy Library, and cultural programs are interesting and innovative.
