The Diet/Nutrition program is the preparation program for future dietitians and nutritionists, who basically have the task of giving proper advice on eating habits, including what to eat, what not to eat, when to eat and how to eat in order to maintain good health. The program covers topics on food, such as the role of food in various cultures, the history and evolution of food, food science and the various nutrients found in food, and also talks about proper nutrition for infants, children, athletes, pregnant women and people suffering from specific medical conditions. The prevention of obesity and weight loss will be discussed, as well.
