Almost one-third of Canadian children are overweight or obese. This has remained unchanged in recent years in spite of awareness and promotion campaigns. For adults, it is also a staggering picture of poor health. Almost one-quarter of Canadian adults are obese and the rate is continuing to rise. Education, experiential learning and fun healthy food-based activities offered by Poppy Innovations can provide the awareness, tools and resources to create the recipe that will change the way we eat to build a healthier community.
