About the course

Every individual requires food substances to supply the components essential to build and repair tissues as they wear out and die, to maintain the body in good working condition and to provide fuel for energy. For good nutrition, a person should consume a well-balanced diet, that is, one that renders an adequate amount of each of the classes of nutrients every day, furnishing at the same time an adequate but not excessive number of calories to meet the energy needs of the body.

This course aims at covering the concept at the intersection of food and health. It also offers a broad education to nurses on how to stay healthy. The course discusses about the principles of nutrition, body mass index, types of nutrition and essentials of human nutrition.
