Nutrition is an input to and foundation for health and development. Health and nutrition are the most important contributory factors for human resource development in the country. WHO constitution states that `the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, region, political, economic and social condition’.

In the past health was often defined as the absence of disease or illness. Although now health is understood to be a complex concept best represented by five physical and psychological dimensions: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Social, Spiritual.So, health is the merging and balance of the five dimensions. This holistic view incorporates many aspects of human existence. Nutrition is the cornerstone of each health dimension. Better nutrition means stronger immune systems, less illness and better health.

I would like to use this blog to create awareness amongst my fellow netizens about foods and nutrition and what role they have in health, wellness and illness.
