Public health nutrition

Public health nutrition focuses on issues that affect the whole population rather than the specific dietary needs of individuals.  The emphasis is on promoting health and disease prevention.

Public health nutrition exists within an extensive infrastructure of government and non-government organisations, service and program delivery systems and the food supply system, covering production through to consumption.
