Specialisation Nutritional Physiology and Health Status
Do you ever wonder what the influence of food is on the functioning of the body? In this specialisation, you will research various age groups and situations, such as growth, pregnancy, and food consumption behaviour. You will also review special situations including serious diseases (clinical food), or during sports and activity.
Behaviour and habits
You may also research the food consumption behaviour and habits of individuals and how you may be able to influence that, for example, through portion sizes. The focus of this research will be on people in certain life stages and per geographical regions. You can also study the methods to precisely measure food consumption.
In short, you will review different aspects and will learn what the effects are of food consumption patterns and the physiological processes on the body and what that means for the status of its health and illness.
