Nutrition science studies the relationship between diet and health. Dieticians are health professionals who specialize in this area of expertise, and are highly trained to provide safe, evidence-based dietary advice and interventions.


Healthy eating patterns in childhood and adolescence promote optimal childhood health, growth, and intellectual development; prevent immediate health problems; and may prevent long-term health problems.
