Stop!!! Is that fried chicken safe to eat! What about that Red Bull? Have no fear because DIETPODS are here!

Here’s the latest initiative in combating unhealthy eating habits amongst teenagers in Trinidad and Tobago. As the saying goes every time you eat something, you are either feeding disease or fighting it. This being the case, a dedicated group of medical students has banded together under the moniker DIETPODS to create an innovative website to help University students live a better life.

Mind Over Platter is a project by a group of medical students of the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine. It is a forum that serves to educate youths, and by extension the wider community, about proper food and nutrition.

They aim to provide their community with a sophisticated palate of healthy nutritional recipes, video tutorials and statistics that can all aid in avoiding lifestyle diseases. Visit to learn more.
