What is Nutrition?

It is important for sport, physical activity and your general health to ensure that you get a good balance of nutrients.

The amount and type of food you eat has a major influence on your health. If you eat a well-balanced diet, it can reduce your risk of various diseases as well as help you to maintain a healthy weight. Key nutrients in your diet should include the following:

  • Carbohydrates provide you with energy.
  • Proteins are another source of energy and essential for the growth and repair of all tissues in your body.
  • Fats are a very concentrated source of energy and also have a number of other roles, including helping to transport essential vitamins around your body.
  • Vitamins and minerals are important to keep your body healthy and functioning.
