- We all need a Healthy Start!
A new study has found that we as a nation are getting fatter. We rely on foods such as McDonalds, KFC and other fast foods which are often a fall back when we’re too lazy to cook.
The days of looking your own food eating well and getting the nutrients your body needs seems to be a blur in the background of such a busy lifestyle. Even our children are at the forefront of weight gain. Over 30% of Aboriginal children are likely to be overweight compared to 25% of Non-Indigenous Australian’s. So do we need to go back to basics when we talk about food preparation?
Author of an Article published on media site The Conversation has spoken out and says that perhaps we should consider ‘traditional’ methods of cooking foods rather than the westernised way of food preparation.
Her name is Amanda Lee. She is the Author of the article and the Professor of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at QUT.
