Food & Nutrition

Food and nutrition work together to support the body’s overall health and well-being.

Nutrition refers to the process of obtaining the nutrients that are necessary for the body to function properly. These nutrients include carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water. They are found in a variety of foods and are necessary for growth, development, and maintenance of the body.

Food, on the other hand, refers to the substances that we eat and drink in order to provide the nutrients that our bodies need. There are many different types of foods, including fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy products.

When we consume a balanced diet that includes a variety of foods from all of the different food groups, our bodies receive the nutrients that they need to function properly. On the other hand, if we do not consume a balanced diet or do not consume enough nutrients, our bodies may not function optimally and we may be at risk for various health problems.
