Nutrition for health care
Dietitian Nutritionist in India Article Page.
With more than one-third of  adults now obese, promotion of a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced, nutritious diet and physical activity is more urgent than ever.  Many Indians consume too much saturated fat and added sugar, cholesterol, sodium, and refined grains.  At the same time, both adults and children do not eat enough fruit, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk products, and oils. Consequently, nutrients that may be inadequate in the Indians diet are vitamin D, calcium, potassium, and dietary fiber. To prevent obesity and improve health, community nutrition programs must reach families, schools, communities, businesses, health care providers, and government policy-makers. This website is designed to provide research updates, nutrition education resources, and evaluation tools that can help those working in the community to support Indians in adopting healthy lifestyles and improving the food environment.
