Statistics show that increasing numbers of South Africans are overweight or obese, with the problem at its worst among adult women and preschool children. South Africans are eating too much and they’re eating the wrong foods. National Nutrition Week 2013, which runs from the 9th to the 15th October, aims to educate South African’s about portion size and choices, to change attitudes and habits so that people ‘downsize’ and reduce their health risk. ‘Eat less – choose your portion with caution!’ will be the central message for National Nutrition Week 2013.
