Why do hospitality, food service management, and culinary students need to study nutrition? The answer is simple. People need to eat. People like to eat. People would like to eat foods that taste good and that are good for them (or at least, not bad for them).
Another part of this simple explanation is that nutrition sells. You will have a difficult time finding a menu that does not have a bit of "nutrition" on it. Steak houses are adding grilled fish items, seafood restaurants are adding vegetarian entrees and bakeries are adding sugar-free and low-fat items to their traditional product lines. If you want to do nutrition, then you have to understand it.

You will also find margin notes, side bars, tables, and charts to enhance chapter information. The appendices provide supplementary information that will be useful to you in the class room and on the job.
Nutrition is a very broad science, touching aspects of biology, chemistry, physiology and psychology. To convey the message of good nutrition to the public, the culinarian needs to have a handle on a bit of all these sciences. This text will guide you through the right balance of nutrition and food service.
This text is the culmination of twenty years of teaching culinary nutrition at community colleges and universities, health care facilities, corporate hotels, correctional facilities and cruise ships in the United States, above the Arctic Circle and at the Equator to culinary Olympians, executive chefs, food service executives, culinary and nutrition students, homeless shelter volunteers, and firefighters. Their input was invaluable in including information that is timely and useful in the world of culinary arts and food service.

Boehr, George Fox University; Joan Aronson, New York University; James Mbugua, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona; Connie Holt, Widener University; Kelly Kohls, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; Lesley Johnson, Ph.D., RD, University of Nevada Las Vegas; and Robert M.
