Foundations of Nutrition


Macronutrients Nutrients are substances needed for growth, energy provision and other body functions. Macronutrients are those nutrients required in large amounts that provide the energy needed to maintain body functions and carry out the activities of daily life. There are 3 macronutrients – carbohydrates, proteins and fats.


Conversion to glucose for use by tissues and cells for energy
  • Maintain correct functioning of the central nervous system, kidneys, brain and muscles
  • Intestinal health and elimination of body wastes


Body growth (especially in children and pregnant women)
  • Tissue repair
  • Preserving lean muscle mass
  • Immune function
  • Formation of essential hormones and enzymes
  • Energy when carbohydrates is not available


Normal growth and development
  • Energy
  • Absorption of vitamins A, D, E, K, and carotenoids
  • Providing cushioning for organs
  • Maintaining cell membranes


Micronutrients Micronutrients, often referred to as vitamins and minerals, are vital to healthy development, disease prevention, and well-being. With the exception of vitamin D, micronutrients are not produced in the body and must be derived from the diet.

Though people only need small amounts of micronutrients, consuming the recommended amount is important. Micronutrient deficiencies can have devastating consequences. At least half of children worldwide younger than five years of age suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies.


Water Water is essential for life because it helps regulate body temperature, lubricate joints, maintain blood volume, flush toxins from the body (via urine), and transport nutrients inside the body. An adult’s body is about 55% to 60% water;1 in children and babies, the percentage is even higher. A lack of water intake, or increased water loss (such as through sweating), results in dehydration, which can be dangerous and even fatal.
