This is a very emotive subject and one that is super important for the future of our society. Read this post from precision nutrition to understand the best strategies for giving your children the best chance to be the healthiest they can be.

You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.
