This book has consistently been used by students studying the first course in food science and nutrition. In several universities, diet therapy topics have been added to the curricula of this course. Therefore, diet therapy has been added to this revision, with a hope of meeting the changing needs of readers in this area. The revised edition incorporates various other subjects, which are more or less related to the useful subjects, like nursing, Education, art, social sciences, home science, medical and paramedical sciences, agriculture, community health, environmental health and pediatrics.
The book is intended to be an ideal textbook encompassing the following aspects:
* Introduction To The Study Of Nutrition
* Nutrients And Energy

Appendices, food exchange lists, recommended dietary allowances for indians and food composition tables have also been included.
