Diet and Nutrition

Nutrition is the science that deals with all the various factors of which food
is composed and the way in which proper nourishment is brought about.
The average nutritional requirements of groups of people are fixed and depend
on such measurable characteristics such as age, sex, height, weight,
degree of activity and rate of growth.

Food is anything solid or liquid that has a chemical composition which enables
it, when swallowed to do one or more of the following:

  • Provide the body with the material from which it can produce heat, or any form of energy
  • Provide material to allow growth, maintenance, repair or reproduction to proceed
  • Supply substances, which normally regulate the production of energy or the process of growth, repair or reproduction.

Good nutrition requires a satisfactory diet, which is capable of supporting the individual consuming it, in a state of good health by providing the desired nutrients in required amounts. It must provide the right amount of fuel to execute normal physical activity. If the total amount of nutrients provided in the diet is insufficient, a state of under nutrition will develop.
