Quick Overview
The word "Nutrition" although known and used commonly is not well understood not only by the lay people, but also by the medical and the paramedical personnel in general. Although the science of “Nutrition’’ has assumed worldwide importance in the recent years, it has been considered as an issue of public health importance in the developing countries. Health is vital to the sustenance of human being, and for this, good nutrition is indispensable. The foundation of good or optimal health is laid down from the womb, i.e. since the time a mother conceives, becomes pregnant. Only adequate and good nutrition to this pregnant woman can take care of the growing fetus to finally deliver a healthy well-built baby. After birth, the early years of life are crucial in laying the foundation of good health, growth and development. For all these aspects, a sound nutrition is most essential for a growing child to bloom into a healthy, well-grown adult.
