Nutrition plays an important part in our life
We are obliged to eat and drink to be able to survive and maintain our bodily functions. The nutrients and many chemicals in foods and drinks we consume every day take part in various processes in our body. Whether major (proteins, carbohydrates and lipids) or minor (vitamins and minerals), all nutrients and water are essential for our health.
Practical aspects of nutrition are as important as the theory. This tutorial book contains some exercises for learners to augment what they will learn in the theory sessions of general nutrition classes. Many practical aspects of nutrition and simple calculations are covered in this tutorial book, which was intended for first and second year undergranduate students studying nutrition or any food science related discipline. I also hope that anyone who is interested in nutrition and foods will benefit from this book by adopting a well- balanced approach toward healthy eating to optimise their health.
