Women's Health

The woman's body undergoes many changes throughout her life - hormonal changes, pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding all effect and are affected by her diet. An unbalanced diet can adversely affect a woman's health.

Nutrition is an important component of a woman's health. Women in Israel are at a significantly higher risk than men for abdominal obesity (this is true for all age groups). Today we also know that a woman's nutrition during pregnancy has significant consequences for her baby which can lead to the child being obese or developing heart diseases.

Nutrition can also affect a woman's fertility and menopausal women are at a greater risk for gaining weight.
