The foods children consume during childhood can form their eating habits for life and determine their short and long-term health. About 26% of children between 5 and 14 are classified as overweight or obese today and many of these children feel the burden of their weight through social isolation, teasing, or even bullying. It’s heartbreaking for parents to see their kids going through social or health challenges, but the good news is that every parent can help their child thrive by giving them the best foods possible.
If you’re the parent of a toddler refusing to eat or only eating certain foods, or a primary school child fighting with you at mealtime, then seeing one of our dietitians could be the turning point in your fussy eater’s relationship with food. If you have an older child dealing with the challenges of carrying extra weight, you could help them gain some confidence and lose the extra kilos through building your nutritional knowledge.

I can take everything I learnt today and implement it at home. I loved the ideas on how to prepare healthy lunches for kids and the card they gave us about reading food labels. The thing I liked the least was learning how much sugar I have been feeding my family. This is something that I will definitely change!!! The presenter was amazing and very helpful and everything was explained very well.
