Nutrition and Obesity

Obesity is a significant public health challenge

Healthcare systems are under increasing pressure from rising numbers of obese children and adults. For the foreseeable future these rates are only set to rise, leading to one of the most significant public health challenges we face today.

Healthy balanced diets and lifestyles can help prevent chronic digestive diseases.
