Ms Dimech is passionate about food and its effect on a person’s health. She believes in a balanced healthy diet based on scientifically proven facts. It is important to note that a healthy diet for an individual changes with age, level of physical activity, food preferences, medical conditions, allergies and intolerances, and lifestyle.
Ms Dimech strongly believes that every type of food is essential in life as it has its particular vitamins, minerals or anti-oxidants essential for good health.

The latter turn out to be detrimental on a person’s health in which it can cause serious damage.
