Wellness Week 2018: Healthy food fun for kids

Nicole Griffith, Barbados, September 2018

For 28-year-old teacher and nutritionist Nicole Griffith in Barbados, teaching kids about how to eat healthy foods so they can lead healthy, productive lives leads to a special kind of personal satisfaction. "Especially when it comes to (kids with) diabetes," notes Nicole.

In addition to teaching at the Springer Memorial Secondary School, Nicole volunteers her spare time during school breaks to teach children ages 6-18 years about healthy eating. She leads a wide range of activities, including camps, food labs, cooking classes and leadership training sessions. She focuses specifically on children who have diabetes and must pay special attention to manage their diets.
