Race on to change a family’s life A SURVEY conducted last year by the Australian Bureau of Statistics found 63.4 per cent of adults overweight or obese. That’s 11.2 million people. The prevalence of overweight and obese people is rising: in 2011-12 the figure was 62.8 per cent, and in 1995 it was 56.3 per cent. Around one in four (27.4 per cent) of children aged 5-17 are overweight or obese, which is slightly more than 2011-12’s 25.7 per cent. Holistic health coach Maddie Race, of Patterson Lakes, said the statistics were frightening – and that she was not prepared to allow them to keep increasing. Now she is “on a mission” to inspire families to eat healthy foods, cook more at home using wholefoods and fresh seasonal produce, and to eliminate processed sugary foods from their diet. “I want to transform families to be the healthiest and happiest that they can be,” she said. “This is why I am offering a health scholarship valued at more than $2500 to one lucky family.” The scholarship is open to all Bayside families. “The scholarship will be awarded to a worthy family who could do with a holistic health overhaul,” she said. The program will include: n Fortnightly one-hour health coaching sessions with the family n Instructions on setting and accomplishing family goals n Understanding what foods are right for each family member, and n Family cooking workshops, shopping tips, trying new foods and
