Course Overview

Nutrition and Dietetics Course Online

Nutrition is a significant determinant of health status. It involves the study of foods, the nutrients they contain, and how to combine these foods in their right proportion to fit individual needs.

This nutrition and dietetics course online is an introductory aspect of what nutrition entails, with the focus being on dieting. It consists of four units carefully prepared to equip candidates with the necessary knowledge and skills required to establish a career in nutrition and advanced studies in the course.

The course begins with an overview of nutrition with definitions and explanation of terms used throughout the course. It then progresses to explain the concept of diet and wraps up with the principles of healthy eating.

Knowledge of nutrition is required to understand the constituents of each food we ingest and how to balance our meals to prevent nutrition-related illnesses that result from malnutrition and eating disorders.
