Sunday Soapbox: Up & Go Vending Program in Schools


Dear Sanitarium

Just a few thoughts on your Up & Go Vending Partnership Program.

I missed this story from last week when you featured on TV3. Now I’ve seen the clip I’m almost speechless, almost. Sanitarium I’m sorry to have to say it but you’re setting the bar extremely low for corporate […]

Sunday Soapbox: Healthy Whole Grains Cure For Bloating?

Being An Expert In The Age of Social Media

I just read an article that I believe provides a compelling explanation as to how we’re getting ever closer to a complete rejection of the traditional food pyramid. That will be in spite of (rather than as a result of) the majority of “experts” in nutrition.  Check out the article here […]

Sunday Soapbox: Are you serious? The DAA strikes again!

“Dietitians approve chocolate this Easter – for malnourished older Australians”

No sadly this is not a joke. This is the actual headline of a media release from the DAA (the Dietitians Association of Australia) last week. In the release they say: ”In a bid to help curb high rates of malnutrition […]
