Eating is so much a part of life that we tend to assume that we know everything about food. It is generally believed that provision of proper nourishment is mainly a question of income. Since food sustains life and accounts for a major portion of our living expenses, it will be useful for everyone to know about:

 

  • The nutrients contained in different items of food;
  • The needs of the human body in terms of various nutrients at different stages of life;
  • Consequences of taking more/wrong types of food; and
  • Ways of selecting food articles, and the techniques for processing, cooking and preserving them.

The focus of the programme is to enable you to make the best possible choice for meeting the nutritional needs of your family. At the same time it aims at helping you choose an adequate variety of foods to suit the taste of each individual in your family. In addition, you will learn about the nature of food-borne diseases and the importance of good food habits in preventing them. You will also be acquainted with schemes of quality control, consumer rights, etc.
