Nutrition is the study of food at work in our bodies, our source for energy, and the medium for which our nutrients can function. Think of nutrition as the building blocks of life.
Nutrition is just one key to developing and maintaining good health. Good health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being – a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
Good nutrition means getting the right amount of nutrients from healthy foods in the right combinations. Having nutrition knowledge and making smart choices about the foods you eat can and will help you achieve optimum health over your lifetime, and be a key to avoiding obesity, illness, and many of today’s most prevalent chronic diseases.
Recent NHS report states that by 2030 there will be 26 million people in the UK who are overweight or obese – a rise of 73% from the current 15 million, which currently costing NHS whopping £9.5 billion per year. Nutritional education is a fantastic tool which is helping us to address this issue and tackle it on an individual and a national level.
