Nutrition for Non-Nutritionists Workshop (Helene Charlebois) Pt 1

Research has revealed that parents will outlive their children in the 21st century.

This is according to Canadian Dietitian, Nutrition and Obesity Expert, Helene Charlebois, who was speaking during a nutrition workshop held yesterday at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

“For the first time in history, if you have a child, your chances of seeing your child die before you are higher,” she warned.

Charlebois noted that this is largely due to the fact that children are not consuming healthy foods, with junk food now a normal part of their diet.

Stating that this information should serve as a wake-up call for parents, Charlebois revealed that the child obesity bracket is rapidly growing and parents need to consider ways to reduce it.

Children are confused. There’s junk food everywhere. There’s junk in schools and at home so children are receiving mixed messages,” she lamented.
