Nicky has found that we are constantly being bombarded by the media, clever marketing strategies and the next new thing in Nutrition  - always promising various health benefits and weight loss - and as a result, there is a lot of confusion concerning diet and nutrition, which is having a detrimental effect on our health.  This nutrition course will appeal to anyone wanting to help their kids, parents, colleagues, friends and family.. but most of all themselves! 
So what is the course all about... it will answer questions like.. What do I need to do to stay healthy?  What really is a balanced diet?  Do I need to take supplements?
