Nutrition is important for physical growth and health throughout the human lifespan, during pregnancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and the senior years. Nutrition is a crucial factor in sports performance and athletic endeavours, because food is used as fuel for physical activity. Diet and nutrition affect body composition, the day to day functioning of the human body and nutrition also affects the brain and cognitive performance. Students in this unit of study will be able to analyse the content and quality of their own diet and make informed decisions concerning foods, nutrients and supplements to optimise their daily nutrient intake and physical performance.
Four multiple choice quizzes (4x15%) and a 2000wd dietary analysis assignment (40%).
