Food is any substance consumed by living organisms, including liquid drinks. It is the main source of energy and of nutrition for animals, and is usually of animal or plant origin. Nutrition is the way our bodies take in and use food. Foods that are great sources of nutrition are called nutrients. There are six different types of nutrients carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water. Nutrients give us energy, growth, help repair body tissues, and regulate body functions. Therefore each nutrient can be vital to our health. Absence of adequate nutrients can cause certain diseases to take hold that can potentially result in death.

Nutrition begins with food. The science of nutrition concerns everything that the body does with food in order to live, function, grow, and heal. Foods that are eaten on a regular basis make up a diet. Although geographic location and family traditions play major parts in forming dietary habits, food choices vary from person to person.
