What's the talk about?

Trying to separate the facts from the fads when it comes to nutrition can be extremely confusing; especially as we are often bombarded with sensationalist headlines and click-bait articles. In this talk Maeve zooms in on one of the most popular and seemingly conflicting areas of nutrition - fats. Is butter really back? Should you add coconut oil to your coffee? Is it OK to use olive oil for frying? Or should all types of fat be avoided like the plague? Come along to find out!
