For them we want to cook as healthy and as tasty we can, therefore as much as it's possible we try to prepare everything in the house.

Other comments: 

Our family business has as a main activity tourism and during the summer we organize camps for children from all over Romania. Most of the staff is International as we get a lot of volunteers from almost everywhere. Because we want to offer to the children food which is as natural and healthy, last year we bought a garden of 1,000 square meters where we intend to plant: tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, beans, onions,carrots, etc ... basically all that is necessary to be able to feed three times per day the participants at the camp and the volunteers. The volunteers who come to us will be asked if they are interested... to do as well a little bit of education with the children about nature, about a healthy lifestyle, about food, etc. We are offering our maximum support for those interested to engage in such a project, which besides working in the garden involves as well a bit of education with the youth.
