THEORY OF NUTRITION AND ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF INTER-RELATIONSHIP WITH HUMAN NUTRITION
Certain people are more susceptible to inadequate nutrition than others. For examples, individuals in rapid growth period such as infants, adolescents and pregnant women, have higher nutritional needs than others and are therefore, more susceptible to the effect of inadequate nutrition other known as Malnutrition. Those living in deprived socio-economic circumstance or that lack adequate sanitation, education, or means to procure food that are nutritionally rich, are also at risk. Lack of adequate nutrition perpetuates poverty; it blunts the intellect and saps the productivity of every one it touches. Thus, quality of food and feeding is an important issue in health outcomes.
