I desire that nutrition education be made a course taught in schools so children who will someday become adults are equipped with this life skill needed to live a healthy life. I am a passionate nutritionist with both a first and second degree in Nutrition and dietetics, also a member of the Nutrition Society of Nigeria(NSN) and a breastfeeding advocate
