Obesity in young children within Australia is a rising concern, with the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare reporting that as many as one in four children will be overweight or obese by the age of five. The upshot of this is that overweight or obese children are more likely to develop chronic disease at an older age, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Paisley Park Early Learning Centre, together with chef and host of The Living Room, Miguel Maestre, are tackling the issue through their 20 centres across Australia that practice innovative techniques to teach healthy eating habits and encouraging positive relationships with food from a preschool age.
