Aging and other health issues like “3 highs” (high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol levels, high blood sugar levels) have become more significant among the Hong Kong population. Moreover, with inflation, food expenditure and meal planning are a source of pressure to low-income families in particular. Unhealthy eating habits and insufficient intake of energy & nutrients not only cause harm on children’s health in long-term, but also retard their growth and brain development, leading to complications such as short stature, underweight and iron-deficiency anemia.

 

Along with nutrition talk collaborations, our registered dietitians also offer outreach consultation and other relevant services to fulfil your organisation’s need.
