What’s nutrition about.
In simple terms, nutrition and dietetics is the science of food and the magic it plays in our bodies. Nutrition is a science that interprets what our foods are made of, the nutrients they contain, the benefits of certain foods and the downside of some. Nutritionists and dietitians study nutrients in relation to proper growth, reproduction, health and disease. They then translate this into the foods we commonly eat and find a way to optimize our diets for a healthy life.
Here’s why it is important
