Nutrition is the science that studies nutrients and their effect on the body. It is linked to every aspect of our growth and development because it is vital to every function in our bodies. But nutrition is not just about it's scientific components. As the word suggests, nutrition is about nourishing. Good nutrition is not only about the foods we eat, but about how we eat them. Cultivating tradition, joy and community around food are just as important as eating fresh, whole and local foods. Approaching nutrition with mindfulness and curiosity is a key step towards good eating and good health.
