Nutrition

Mon 7.00-9.00pm • Duration: 8 weeks

Course Fee:   €100

Start Date:    Monday 28th January 2019

This 8-week course will explore a range of nutrition topics that take centre stage in the media and become interesting conversation topics among those interested in food and health.

We will learn about fat, sugar, protein, vitamins and minerals in relation to health. We will also examine the link between nutrition and common Western diseases and discuss issues like overweight and obesity, food labelling and allergies, as well as physical activity and an introduction to sports nutrition. Practical activities will include studying food labels and calculating calorie requirements.

We hope this course will help students separate nutritional fact from fiction, and give them the confidence to make healthy food choices in their own lives going forward.
