An introduction to healthy eating in Latin America

In February 2014 I was travelling in Central America and I was asked to prepare an overview of healthy eating for a Latin American audience, for use by a speaker who is not a nutritionist, but is interested in environmental issues, health and sustainability. In response I prepared the following overview of healthy eating in Latin America.

Childhood obesity

In 2012/13 I undertook a role to develop a children’s healthy weight care pathway. Following extensive research and work with local stakeholders I completed work on various reports and papers which were submitted to the commissioners for their consideration. This work was commissioned by Portsmouth City council and written under the supervision of Dr Clare Hencken, Director at Bodymorph Ltd, Portsmouth.
