As a nation, we’re consuming mass amounts of foods…and it isn’t always as healthy as it should be. Most of it is processed food that contains excessive amounts of fat, salt and sugar along with ingredients we’ve never heard of, let alone can pronounce.  What’s as troubling is the dramatic increase in the variety of processed foods and beverages that are available to the everyday consumer.  Portion sizes have increased in alarming rates, and people are continuing to eat in a way that literally is affecting their bodies and health.  The outcome: obesity, high blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease are plaguing Americans at rates never seen before in our country.  This nation needs a real food education…and that’s where our job begins!  The Rak Foundation for Nutritional Awareness aims to put the power of food information into your hands!
