Nutrition

Nutrition is the science that focuses on the study of food and its impact on health and well-being. It involves understanding the role of nutrients in the body, their functions, and how they are obtained through a balanced diet.

Nutritionists or dietitians use this knowledge to provide evidence-based guidance on food choices and meal planning to support optimal health. They consider factors such as age, sex, activity level, and specific health conditions to create personalized nutrition plans. Good nutrition promotes growth, development, and maintenance of the body, as well as prevention and management of various diseases.

It emphasizes the importance of consuming a diverse range of foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats, while minimizing the intake of processed and sugary foods.
