Growing happy little veggie-mites with Kate Di Prima

Tuesday, 11 Jan 2022

Kate Di Prima is a leading Australian dietitian who is passionate about the health of families and educating future generations.

She’s regarded as an expert in treating children who are fussy and picky eaters and has authored and co-authored cookbooks including More Peas Please: Solutions for Feeding Fussy Eaters and Kids Meals the whole family will love. She also provides regular expert commentary in the media and lectures at conferences both in Australia and overseas.

Kate says that although we have an abundance of fresh, sustainable and affordable food at our fingertips, in many Australian households, the food rainbow is not transferring to the dinner plate.

In this podcast for Life Ed Queensland, Kate talks about the hot button diet issues facing many families from why kids aren’t eating enough greens, to managing fussy eaters and dealing with allergies, and responding to the obesity epidemic.

Kate also offers up simple planning strategies to help busy families eat healthier and explains how you can resist the junk food marketing push by supermarket shopping with product placement in mind.

If you’re trying to lose a few kilos after COVID lockdown and Christmas, or just reset your family’s diet for a healthier 2021, Kate’s engaging humour and practical tips will have you feeling inspired to make positive changes.
