A school can build resilient children, a school can provide excellent academic teachers, and your school has the ability to create leaders, creative thinkers and athletes; however it is impossible to do any of that without underpinning young adults with good nutrition which supports all aspects of their health…their physical body, mental awareness and emotional wellbeing.

Nutrition for Teenagers
It is exciting how schools are really embracing the wellbeing of our children and teenagers and School Nutrition Programs and teenagers’ diet is an extremely important topic. These young people are faced with mental, social, and emotional challenges daily and if they have a solid healthy foundation they are able to cope better with life’s challenges.
Accomplished speaker Michele Hedge is a Nutritionist (Adv. Dip of Nutritional Medicine, Australia Traditional Medicine Society) and published author and a dynamic health advocate. Nutrition for teenagers is an extremely important topic for Michele, particularly as she has three teenagers herself.
As a nutrition speaker, Michele is in demand as schools realize the importance of teenage nutrition and how a teenager’s diet affects their lives daily. And her nutrition presentation has a positive effect on the teenagers. Michele looks at the use of nutrient-dense, whole foods as the basis of mental and physical stability.
