"Quality of life depends on the quality of food we eat."

Nutrition and Dietetics is a remunerative job. Nutrition & Dietetics is a sub-discipline of medical sciences that involves the study of the promotion of health through healthy food, nutrition therapy, and food management.

The undergraduate program at GNA University caters the students to learn the effect of food on human health and enables them to grasp the fundamentals of Diet therapy and its application in patients as a major focus of dietetics. The field has gained importance as people have become more conscious about the way they look, what they eat.

Dieticians or nutritionists help patients promote their lifestyle by correcting their eating habits. The curriculum is structured in a way that guides future dieticians on healthy eating habits and makes a personalized food plan that meets the patient’s dietary restrictions, occupational constraints, fitness, and stress levels. Here, at GU the nutritionist demonstrated the effect of food on humans and the effect of heat, storage, and other environmental factors on food (when it is cooked/served).
