Human Nutrition & Dietetics

Human nutrition refers to the provision of fundamental nutrients essential to support human longevity and health. The seven significant classes of nutrients are carbohydrates, fats, fibers, minerals, proteins, vitamins, and water. These nutrient classes are classified as either macronutrients or micronutrients (needed in smaller quantities). The macronutrients are carbohydrates, fats, fiber, proteins, and water. The micronutrients are minerals and vitamins. Poor nutrition is a permanent problem often linked to poverty, poor nutrition, starvation, perception and practices, and meager hygiene and food security. Malnutrition and its consequences are immense contributors to deaths and disabilities worldwide. Promoting good nutrition helps children grow, promotes human development and eradication of poverty.
