Chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure have become common causes of death and illness. Although the public has been made aware of these diseases, knowledge alone does not translate into behavioural change. Motivation to change and acquiring skills in buying and cooking the right food to maintain health are essential in reducing the risks of such disease.
