Pacific peoples have the highest rates of heart disease and diabetes, with 63.7% of Pacific adults and 23.3% of Pacific children aged between 2-14 years being obese.
The foods we choose affect our risk of heart disease. Although we need a small amount of fat, sugar and salt in our diets, too much can lead to high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.
The nutrition courses offered by Pacific Heartbeat aim to empower Pacific communities make healthier food choices for their families and communities.
Our courses look at the importance of making healthy food choices and cover a range of topics (see course outlines for the Community Nutrition Course and the Certificate in Pacific Nutrition Course).
