“I could see that my ideas and advice were working for my clients but needed to find a way to get this valuable yet simple message to all Australians. I did it in pictures and ensured that the reader had the actual plate and bowl used in the pictures so they couldn’t go wrong.”

- Amanda Clark, Advanced APD.
