Julia joins me today to discuss the key ingredients of good health through nourishing meals. She shares her journey from lab researcher to female entrepreneurs bringing food innovations and education to the younger generation. We discuss the eating patterns of adults and children in America and share how food compounds can affect our long-term health as well as help prevent chronic illnesses. Julia shares how the Global Food and Health Institute and YScooks inspire children to learn about nutrition through technology. We also discuss why we need to make nourishing meals available to all, regardless of where they live and their financial constraints.
“What we hope to do is create a generation of ambassadors - not only to take care of themselves by eating and nourishing their bodies, but also to help others see this is really important.” - Julia Olayanju
