Nutritional Challenges of the 21st Century

We will examine different views on “healthy eating,” explore the relationship between diet and chronic disease, and discuss educational, biological, psychological, economic, and socio-cultural obstacles we face in attempting to meet our nutritional needs. Students will discuss and critique various theories on nutrition and research and make oral presentations on related topics. They will outline strategies for overcoming our nutritional challenges based on the information presented. III.O
