In this article, you will know how good nutrition can improve your health.
Have you ever wondered if you are getting the right nutrients from the foods you eat? It is a common mistake to think that malnutrition means simply not having enough food. People who do not consume enough food can be malnourished, but those who consume too many are at the same risk.
Malnutrition is defined as an abnormal physiological state due to inadequate, unbalanced or excessive consumption of macronutrient and micronutrient. vegetables includes malnutrition and overfeeding as well as micronutrient deficiencies.
In other words, malnutrition occurs when a person’s diet contains too few or too many nutrients. Any of us can suffer malnutrition and not know it!
To make a healthy and balanced diet is important to make the right decisions, but often these decisions are based on factors other than nutrition: the availability and cost of food, taste and appearance, personal likes and dislikes, and cultural practices and traditions.
