Programme overview

Nutrition and the Consumer Diet: Micro-credential

Our Concepts of Nutrition and Healthy Eating micro-credential is a response to the societal demand for nutritious, healthy, safe, and sustainable food. It aims to clarify the meaning of "nutritious," "healthy," and "sustainable" by providing an introduction to nutritional science and exploring the current evidence supporting healthy eating guidelines.

Diet is one of the largest modifiable risk factors for preventable diseases. Despite what may appear to be an ever-changing nutritional landscape with conflicting messages, there is a well-established consensus on what constitutes a healthy diet. This micro-credential provides a comprehensive overview of the role of food and nutrition in health maintenance, health promotion and disease prevention, across the human lifecycle. The micro-credential aims to demonstrate how meeting nutritional requirements for good health is reflected in the selection of specific types of food.
