Nutrition Basics

What is Nutrition?

  • Nutrition is the science of food, how the body digests food, and how the body uses food for growth, maintenance, repair and reproduction of living tissues within the body.
  • Every individual cell within the human body needs a regular supply of appropriate nutrients to maintain correct function.
  • Nutrition makes a vital contribution to health and the prevention of disease.
  • Historically, nutritional deficiencies led not only to generally poor health, but also directly to some specific diseases such as scurvy, rickets and beriberi.
  • During the 1900's the discovery of vitamins confirmed a belief that a wide variety of foods were needed both for growth in children and health maintenance in adults.
