With so many views and interpretations of health and nutrition out there, its a wonder any of us can find our way to health with food. There many ways of looking at it but what's clear is that diet has a definitive effect on our health and longevity- as well as our perspective and productivity. We will look at some of the different models out there and help build a basic framework of what it means to be healthy and how to sustain that beyond trends and fads. This course aims to help participants begin to gain deeper understanding of what constitutes the fundamentals of a healthy dietary regimen and what they may need to help achieve their health goals.
The aim of the course is to provide background information on the subject of nutrition and what constitutes healthy and provide some insights and tools that guide healthy eating behaviours in participants own lives.
You will cover: Food Pyramids and Plates Fundamentals of Nutrition
Eating Behaviours that help or harm Environment and Health Core Nourishment
