Nutrition Programs

Pre and Post Natal Nutrition

There are many changes that accompany pregnancy, and nutritional needs are certainly one of them! Which nutrients should we be paying special attention to, why, and how do we incorporate them into our daily food choices? 

Protein, carbohydrate, and fat are the three energy-yielding nutrients for mom during pregnancy. These are going to supply you with the energy you need in addition to carrying out many structural and functional roles as your baby grows and develops.

Kids Nutrition

Parents nowadays go easy on their children’s diets. The normal diet of children comprises processed foods like biscuits, sandwiches noodles (both refined and fried), candies and chocolates. Excess of refined foods and trans-fats in children’s diet harms their physical development at an early age. Nutrition for kids is based on the same principles as nutrition for adults. Everyone needs the same types of nutrients — such as vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein and fat. Children, however, need different amounts of specific nutrients at different ages.  Rufina Coutinho famous dietician of India introduces students, their parents and the institute faculty to the correct diet plan via some of her engaging and interacting activities.
