HE W10 An Introduction to Nutrition. All food was created good.  Even so, we often make uninformed food choices.  This course will explore the basic concepts of nutrition, including nutrient composition, “super foods”, eating wisely in the dining hall, apartment cooking, and the effect our own choices have on our health, the health of a community, and local and worldwide food availability.  We will take a concerted look at specific food- related issues of social justice, including our farming and production practices, our systems and infrastructure for food distribution to the poor, and the impact of hunger on health, learning, and quality of life. Evaluation is based on projects, quizzes, presentations, and a reflection paper. J. Walton. 8:30 to noon.
