Dr Avena's wellness-series lectures are designed for non-scientist audiences who are interested in improving their nutrition and health. They provide science-based information and advice on how individuals can develop better eating behaviors, and recognize pitfalls in the environment that often derail healthy eating attempts.
Education and Parenting
- Raising Children to Eat Right: Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death in the USA. Kids are at the greatest risk for developing not just obesity, but life-long diseases such as diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Despite coaxing and education, many kids still prefer to eat unhealthy food. In this lecture and discussion, Dr. Avena explains the dangers of obesity in youth into adulthood, and explores some of the common psychological and nutritional mistakes that parents make raising their children that can inadvertently promote unhealthy eating, and offer solutions on how to fix them.
- Hey kids! You Are What You Eat: In this fun, interactive seminar designed for school children (K-8 or high school), Dr. Avena teaches kids about science and nutrition all in one. She helps children to see why healthy eating is essential to be their best (both in the classroom and on the playing field). Through games and creative animations, children learn about basic brain and body systems, and also learn about what is in our processed foods. This presentation comes with additional materials on nutrition and the body that can be used by teachers and parents.
