By DAVID BORNSTEINFOOD EDUCATION is any set of conditions and/or learning experiences designed to facilitate people eating food that contributes to their health and well-beingNutrition education is a process by which people are assisted in making decisions about eating. Its ultimate goals are to improve the recipients' nutritional status or other aspects of their nutrition well-being through both knowledge acquisition and behaviour change skills (Devine 1988, The American Dietetic Association, 1986). Generally, the goal of nutrition education is to change specific dietary behaviours which contribute to the poor health of the public. However, other considerations such as taste and enjoyment must not be forgotten if efforts are to succeed.Nutrition education is a process by which people are assisted in making decisions about eating.
