Diet and Nutrition

A person’s diet is made up of the type of food they eat whereas nutrition is the way that the food people eat nourishes their bodies.

Good nutrition means your body is getting all the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs to work at its best level. Eating a healthy diet is your main way to get good nutrition.

Most people know that a balance of good nutrition and physical activity can help them reach and maintain a healthy weight. But the benefits of good nutrition go beyond weight.

Good nutrition can also:

Improve cardiovascular and other body system functions, mental well-being, school/cognitive performance, and wound healing or recovery from illness or injury

Reduce the risk for diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, some cancers, and osteoporosis
Increase energy and the body’s ability to fight off illness

There are a number of factors which will impact on a person’s nutritional and dietary needs:


Different age groups have different nutritional needs, and people’s diets should meet those specific needs. For example, an infant needs a different diet and nutrition than a teenager. Likewise, the nutritional needs and diet of a pregnant woman are different than those of an elderly man.

In addition, factors such as a person’s height and current weight, current health status, and activity level also affect what kinds of nutrients they need and how much they need.
