Nutrition and Wellness
Nutrition and Wellness focuses on highlighting strategies for a healthy lifestyle. Two changes have led to a significant increase in preventable diseases: a global increase in the consumption of heavily processed food, and cultural shifts in many parts of the world where people are moving away from preparing food at home. Learners are equipped with practical skills to be healthier consumers of food, and consider the importance of a wellness lifestyle with an emphasis on self-responsibility, physical fitness, stress management, and environmental sensitivity.
