Understanding what you eat is vital to your health, well-being and how you look, feel and function. In healthy individuals, being aware of nutrition and hydration is fundamental to staying fit and well. Equally, if a person is unwell, it is vital that their nutrition is managed closely to reflect their needs or specific health conditions in a bid to aid their recovery.

It covers the principles of good nutrition, the path to malnutrition, safe food handling and explores the challenges presented in those who have medical conditions or difficulties eating and drinking.
