Program 2 – Nutrition – In today’s world, we live busy, hectic lives and therefore, many people lack the time or skills to prepare nutritious meals and rely on fast, convenience foods for their meals.  This can lead to childhood ovesity and adult on-set diabetes and heart disease.  Robin Hartl and Karen Archibald with the CHEP Program explain how incorporating healthy fresh fruits and vegetables into your daily diet can lessen the odds of developing these life-threatening diseases.  Later Chef James Kyle from the Boffins Club prepares a healthy and delicious meal of salmon and fresh lettuce.
