Meet the Parkinsons

Dad, Jonny’s battle with type 2 diabetes is his biggest health crisis but it’s not his only one. Mum, Nicki wants a beach babe body, but has hit a weight loss slump despite working out three times a week. Nicki’s brother Tamati, is turning into a teenage couch potato and doesn’t know how to change. But there’s also Indy and Lincoln whose food allergies create curve balls for family meals. Then there’s French exchange student Jules, who might be rugby fit, but his nutrition knowledge is almost nil.

The Parkinsons need help and a lot of knowledge – and Claire has plenty of both to give. In this series to push them to their health and fitness goals, Claire is tackling everything from what and how the family eat, to growing their own, kids lunch ideas, healthy baking, healthy celebrations, and in between there’ll be new experiences to change their mindset about what healthy really means.

Each episode also includes nutrition charged, easy recipes by culinary expert Sam Campbell. Claire Turnbull’s in the kitchen discussing the nutritional elements as Sam cooks up a huge range of healthy dishes that don’t compromise the ‘yum’ factor.
