Nutrition education for health professionals

Nutrition education is key to changing the eating habits and lifestyles of the population towards healthier patterns. In this sense, early childhood is a key time to act as it is when eating habits and preferences are established, that they will be maintained into adulthood. Food education is a basic tool for health professionals, to transmit to the different groups the knowledge necessary for a healthy diet, the skills to carry it out and work on the barriers and / or facilitating factors that, at the attitudinal level, they hinder or help to lead a healthy lifestyle. The great challenge for professionals is also to teach patients to be critical with information so that they can dismantle the misconceptions about nutrition that exist in today's society.
