Fatima De La O

Fatima De La O is a speaker at Partnership for a Healthier America's 2017 Building a Healthier Future Summit.

Fatima De La O joined the Adelphi/Langley Family Support Center four years ago. Through the Center’s Cooking Matters program, she learned how to cook healthy meals while her son, Eduardo, participated in a child development program to improve his cognitive and language abilities.

Cooking Matters showed her how to use less salt, more vegetables and more creative ways of preparing healthier meals for her family, as well as how to change her grocery shopping habits to allow her to save money. Now, she and her family are eating healthier, more nutritious meals that help them all to maintain a healthier weight.
