Everyone has to eat – but how should we eat? What is healthy for our body, and why? Our nutrition class (Nutrition 101) will give you a solid grounding in basic principles of healthy eating and the science you need to really understand what’s in your food and what happens in your body when you eat it.

By studying nutrition, you will acquire foundational knowledge for future studies in health- or fitness-related fields and learn how to improve your personal health. If you decide you want to pursue nutrition as a profession, SPSCC is an excellent place to take prerequisite science courses, such as biology and chemistry, before transferring to a 4-year college or university to finish your bachelor’s degree.
