3: Assess diets, prepare foods, and promote consumption of foods to meet the nutritional needs of healthy people throughout the life cycle.


In this Assignment, you will be assessing how the nutrient needs of the case study individual you created in your Unit 2 Assignment would change based on a different stage in their life cycle.

  • There are a number of phases in the life of a person where they have specific nutritional needs. For example, nutritional needs are different in infancy, childhood, adolescence, pregnancy, adulthood, and older adulthood. Pick one phase of life that is different than that of your case study. Discuss in detail how your nutrition recommendations would change for your case study if they were in this different phase of life.
