"Nutritional counselling is key to treating and preventing obesity, which has been linked to a variety of childhood illnesses," says naturopathic doctor Nick De Groot, Dean of Clinical Education at The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM).
According to the Toronto Heart Health Partnership, one-third of Canadian children are overweight or obese, significantly increasing their risk for early onset of chronic diseases, including Type-II diabetes.
To educate the public about nutrition, CCNM is hosting a free seminar on Monday, November 3 from 6 - 8 p.m. "Nutritional Planning for the Busy Family" launches a series of health-related seminars offered during CCNM's first-ever Kidz 'n Teens Health Week, running from Monday, November 3 - Sunday, November 9.
Other seminar topics include "Nutritional Support for the Young Athlete," and "Natural Approaches to Common Childhood Illnesses."
A family-friendly environment, the college will operate a free, supervised children's play area while parents attend the seminars.
