DISTRIBUTION OF NEWIPO BROCHURE – Pasta for All Each IPO member country will invite/urge opinion leaders and consumers to download the new PASTA FOR ALL brochure at www.IPO.org (or member country website) .

Oldways will collaborate with IPO to persuade international organizations (such as the EU and the World Health Organization and the Pan American Health Organization) to celebrate World Pasta Day annually in countries around the world.
GLOBALIZE WORLD PASTA DAY Oldways will also create a World Pasta Day media plan to be executed in member countries. Oldways will also collaborate with current IPO Scientific Advisory Board members to promote World Pasta Day in member countries. Oldways will recruit additional Board members and other opinion leaders in this campaign to celebrate World Pasta Day annually in countries around the world.
CHILDREN’S COOKING AND NUTRITION PROGRAMWITH PASTA AS THE CENTERPIECEPasta and Children Around the World CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE – PROPOSE TO: Develop a pasta-specific cooking and nutrition program for children, modeled after Oldways current “HIGH FIVE!” program. Pasta and Children Around the World will use pasta as the foundation for the curriculum, replacing the “HIGH FIVE!” focus on flatbreads.
CHILDREN’S COOKING AND NUTRITION PROGRAMWITH PASTA AS THE CENTERPIECEPasta and Children Around the World CONTEXT – “HIGH FIVE!” Children learn about the history, culture, cuisine, ingredients of particular countries and regions and then learn to make the flatbread and accompaniments of that country. For example: Vietnam (rice paper wraps); India (chapatti and dal); Norway (lefse); Eastern Mediterranean (pita and chickpea salad); China (Szechuan bread); Mexico (tortillas and salsa); Mediterranean (bruschetta and paximadia).
