Food, fluid and nutrition are fundamental to health and wellbeing, and therefore essential to quality and safety in health and social care. What we eat is vital to our health and well-being and how we look, feel and function. People must have a diet that is nutritious and safe to eat. Food safety is, therefore, essential, especially when preparing and handling food for others.
This introductory course was developed to improve the awareness of the importance of diet and nutrition, as well as basic food safety and hygiene aspects.
