Our mission

“DRIVEN TO PROTECT”

At Willa, the team is “driven to protect” by listening, fighting, and putting up a battle as necessary to protect our clients.  In the process, the client will obtain knowledge, tools, and resources that teaches them how nutrition protects their health and wellbeing.  This will empower our clients to become “driven to protect” their health confidently with nutrition.

The Evidence

The evidence proves that a healthy diet protects against malnutrition and long-term health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, and so much more. Evidence shows that bad nutrition and a lack of physical activity increases the risk of developing these conditions. Good nutrition starts at the moment one is born. Breastfeeding is significant to fostering a healthy lifestyle, brain development, and also provides long term health protection against obesity, cancer, and other health conditions.
