Programme: Food and Nutrition is plays a pivotal role in leading a healthy life, where diverse disciplines and theoretical-methodological approaches are addressed among tensions and consensus. The objective of pursuing a B.Sc (Gen) in Nutrition course in is that the student will acquire scientific knowledge of basic sciences and principles of Food and Nutrition. Students will get a broad understanding of clinical nutrition, food science, sports nutrition, public health nutrition and its influence on human health and well-being. They will develop skills pertaining to critical analysis, entrepreneurship and communication for career development in the field of nutritional sciences, and will enhance practical knowledge in the domain of Food and Nutrition for its applications in industry and research. A student can pursue B.Sc. in Food and Nutrition followed by M.Sc. Nutrition and Dietetics. M.Sc Nutrition and Dietetics has four major specialized fields of nutrition– Clinical Nutrition, Public Health Nutrition, Food Science and Technology, and Sports Nutrition. All these fields have their scope of working as a nutritionist and had opportunity to serve in traditional academia (example-teacher, professor, research scholar, and scientist). Along with that a Nutrition Professional offers guidance to people, families, and organizations on how to change food, lifestyle, and mindset for optimum health promotion in communities also. They can work with a licensed healthcare provider to help individuals with previously diagnosed disease recognize biochemical imbalances and toxicity which lead to poor health.

3. Macronutrients: Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are studied in more detail, including their structures, functions, and roles in the body. This includes an understanding of macronutrient digestion and absorption.
4. Micronutrients: Vitamins and minerals are studied in more detail, including their functions in the body, dietary sources, and deficiencies.
