Nutrition [nōō-'trĭ-shŭn]
The science of food and how it impacts your body.

We all eat. Nutrition is the science that can help us make healthy choices about what we eat. Nutritionists study food and its impact on the bodies of people and animals. Nutritionists also study how human behavior relates to what and how we eat. Can what you eat help you grow or make you sick? How do you find out if a food item is good for you? How can you use food labels to make better choices?
