Good Food Friday – School Nutrition Warm Winter Porridge

This ever so delish and healthy recipe is one from the lovely Chelsea Motlik, founder of School Nutrition.

Chelsea has been practising as a qualified Nutritionist for 6 years, with an additional 4 years in the health and fitness industry. Over her time she has been heightened to the lack of education that we have as a community around nutrition, and how many different diets the average person has been on. Research has repeatedly shown that education about nutrition combined with accessibility to healthy food has been the only intervention with long-term results on a person’s health and diet. For this reason Chelsea has developed an education program for Children that is inline with the national curriculum. Her aim; to provide children the best chance of understanding food from the very beginning, eliminating confusion we as adults have now. Her big time goal is for this curriculum to be accessible to all children in Australia and beyond. Chelsea also offers an education program for adults in the same vein, in understanding how you can have your ideal body weight and stay there without any FAD dieting!
