Food for Life
for Life is an advanced course in food and nutrition that addresses the
variation in nutritional needs at specific stages of the human life cycle:
lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood including elderly.
The most common nutritional concerns, their relationship to food choices and
health status and strategies to enhance well-being at each stage of the
lifecycle are emphasized. This course provides knowledge for real life and
offers students a pathway into dietetics, consumer foods, and nutrition science
careers with additional education at the post-secondary level. Pre-requisite for this course is
the Food, Nutrition and Wellness course.
