Nutrition is a discipline , which is closely connected with many other areas related to human existence, such as agriculture, economics, medicine, food technology, engineering, biological sciences, sociology, anthropology etc. Several factors such as low agricultural production, poverty, population explosion, ignorance and poor environmental sanitation causes and aggravates malnutrition. Ignorance is perhaps the most important single factor underlying malnutrition and malnutrition could be prevented to a considerable extent if available foods are better utilized. Hence, nutrition education is necessary at all stages.
