Tina Dunne encourages children and teenagers to eat more fruit and vegetables
How you might ask?
Encourage your children and Teenager(s) to eat more fruit and Vegetables and introduce the funky and fun' Dunne' concept of:
To date statistically only 14% of your child/teenager's lifestyle diet consists of this vital, life sustaining and power enriching food group. Fruit and vegetables contain powerful phytochemicals that are packed full of anti-oxidants that help the body to eliminate toxic build up in the body. The toxins cause the body to become sluggish and tired. They interfere with good metabolism so that proper absorption of nutrients is blocked and the body cells have a big challenge to perform effectively and weight gain results.
Most children eat a half serving of vegetables per day - FACT (National Children's survey 2005)
Tina has developed a fantastic way for you and all your family overcome this dilemma in a fun and funky way. Make sure each day that you and your family eat your colours.
