Nutrition and Diet

What is nutrition?

Nutrition -  Is the organic process  of  nourishing  or  being nourished; the processes  by  which  an  organism, including plant or animal, assimilates food and uses  it  for growth and maintenance.

Why does it matter?

Nutrition is our fuel source - Our bodies take the food and liquids we provide it and break them down as nutrients. It helps us stave off disease, heal wounds, and provide the energy source for physical activity.
