And if you’re anything like me then you’re ready for longer days and warmer weather. W This edition, we are exploring the theme of salt - how salt can affect our health, and how we can be salt-savvy as consumers and parents. I hope you’ll enjoy the informative and practical articles written by accredited dietitians from a diverse range of backgrounds. As usual, we’ve included a heap of delicious and healthy (low salt) recipes. Along with our seasonal eating tips, in this issue we also bring you ideas for staying healthy when you’re holidaying. Also be sure to look out for our feature on training and eating to build muscle mass, from an exercise physiologist who is also a qualified dietitian. I hope you’ll find our spring issue both engaging and enlightening.
