Students will learn about the role of macronutrients and micronutrients in the human body and how excess and deficient intake of these nutrients may lead to poor health outcomes. Students will be able to apply this in the context of their lives by undertaking an individual diet analysis where students analyse their own diets to identify potential nutrient deficiencies or excesses, and explore potential health implications.
