Alejandra Cantoral

Alejandra Cantoral 130 x 168I have been interested in nutrition since I was a teenager. In my country, Mexico, we have a great variety of foods and ways to prepare them. As I grew up I was always concerned about obesity, worldwide and in my country. I am convinced that a major part of this problem is the excess intake of processed food. As a mother and as a nutritionist I try to convince my children and my patients to take the time and enjoy to prepare healthy home food and avoid fast food as much as possible.

I became a nutritionist in 1999. After that I did an intensive course of nutrition support (enteral and parenteral nutrition) and worked in a children´s hospital for four years. After that I decided to start a master´s degree in 2004 and obtained my MSc in science in nutrition at the public health school of Mexico.
