When we mention obesity, a person’s figure comes to mind. However, obesity caused other illnesses. Coroner heart diseases, hypertension, diabetes, some cancer types and many metabolica problems are some of them and they decrease the quality of your life. As Reis Gıda, especially the schools and universities, with our many acitivities organized in various platforms, we keep the problem of obesity in the agenda and continue to inform our children, young generation and parents about healhy eating. Because the problem of obesity shouldn’t be underestimated. In every step we take, we shouldn’t only think about ourselves but our community.
