What we choose to eat can have a direct affect on our ability to enjoy life to its fullest. This is true for everyone, despite his or her age and current health. Our food choices play a major role in:
  • Promoting and maintaining good health;
  • Promoting optimal growth in infants, children and adolescents;
  • Preventing many chronic diseases (like heart disease and diabetes) and treating others; and,
  • Speeding recovery from injuries and surgery.
