It is amazing to meet people who make a difference, and today I met two such people. Professor David Crawford and Cathy Cooper are part of a world-class team looking into the effect of physical activity and nutrition across different life stages.
The Centre for Physical Activity and Nutrition Research (C-PAN) is dedicated to improving health and quality of life through research http://www.deakin.edu.au/research/src/cpan/
We talked about the importance of children having a connection to where their food comes from, and how food is prepared in the family home. We discussed the research findings that children who are involved with growing their own vegetables are far more likely to give them a try, and the amazingly positive effect this has on their health.
We agreed to get together again, and I am honoured to be working with such incredible and dedicated people.
