Got questions about how to feed your child healthy food? Let us put them to an expert
We’ll be chatting to Dr Eva Orsmond live about her new show, Ireland’s Health Divide – and we want to put your questions to her.

IF YOU HAVE children, you no doubt want to feed them the healthiest food you can.

But sometimes, you might need a bit of advice from an expert. This afternoon, we’ll have Dr Eva Orsmond in our office for a Facebook Live interview.

We’ll be chatting to her about her new show, Ireland’s Health Divide, and why the experience moved her to tears. In the documentary, she explored how where you live in Ireland can determine your future health.

“I now understand that tackling health inequality is much more complex than lecturing people about the food on their plate or their health choices,” said the doctor. “It’s about understanding why people make those choices in the first place.”

We’ll also be asking her about the challenges parents in Ireland face in feeding their children healthy food.

Do you have a question for Dr Eva about feeding your children – from what’s the best quick meal to make, to how to feed a picky eater?

The Facebook Live will take place at 3pm – watch on our Facebook page. Ireland’s Health Divide airs this evening at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
