‘Nutrition is the process of providing or obtaining the food necessary for health and growth. It is nourishment for the body. The medical definition of nutrition is the process of taking in food and using it for growth, metabolism and repair. Stages of this are ingestion, digestion, transport, assimilation and excretion.’
– Hannah Burton, Therapy Partners
