|CPH 131||FOOD AND NUTRITION IN THE LIFE CYCLE||CPH 101||3|
This course introduces the basic principles and concepts of nutrition as they apply to different age and social groups, such as pregnant and lactating mothers, sport-persons and the elderly. Needs of nutrients at different life cycle stages are addressed, as are the nutritional anthropometric measures and growth monitoring parameters, to enable the detection of signs of inadequate nutrient intake, or, conversely, those of over-nutrition.
