Gain skills to evaluate nutrition information and apply to your own diet
This course will help you understand the scientific basis of human nutrition, and current nutrition concepts and controversies.
Each week we look at a different theme:
• The makings of a ‘healthy diet’: Which components of your diet can promote wellbeing and reduce the risk of diseases?
• Why do we eat what we eat? What are the ‘drivers’ that influence our food choices?
• Food and disease: Can you really eat your way to health?
• Nutrition fads, myths and the plain truth: Are our genes to be blamed for our current nutritional habits?
This course is designed for anyone interested in food and wellbeing, and assumes no prior knowledge.
