Paula Peralta (Penrith Clinic), Daniel Vukovic (Westmead Clinic) and Samantha Rand (Practice Dietician) have recently finished the season with the NSW Swifts. Unfortunately the Swifts succumbed to the Queensland Firebirds in the final 15 seconds of the game, going down 57-56.
Food and nutrition are topics almost everyone has an opinion on. Marketers like to develop or use buzzwords to gain market appeal.
