Kylee Sleep also studied Human Nutritional Science at the University of Manitoba. The science of human nutrition can be summarized as understanding the relationship between food components and cellular function. It also involves understanding the relationship between food and food components and the health of individuals within the community.
The overall health and well-being of humans is strongly influenced by the food that they eat. The study of Human Nutritional Science integrates information from various disciplines to give students a thorough understanding of nutrition and its application. It also provides the structure for coordinating and enhancing interdisciplinary nutrition research and graduate education.
People in the field Human Nutritional Science use interdisciplinary knowledge about diet and human nutrition to improve public health and advance the understanding of current nutrition issues, such as childhood obesity. Well-nourished children are better equipped to learn, and providing healthy food and nutrition education are the key components in educating students to make choices that will develop into life-long healthy eating habits.
The University of Manitoba has an outstanding Human Nutritional Science program. Its Department of Human Nutritional Sciences, within the Faculty of Human Ecology, has an accredited dietetic program. U-M is accredited by a professional organization such as the Dietitians of Canada. Graduates of the program are qualified to become registered dietitians.
Areas of study include energy metabolism, proteins, vitamins, minerals, community nutrition and diet in the prevention and treatment of diseases. Supporting discipline courses include biochemistry, biology, chemistry, physiology, microbiology, mathematics, and physics.
Kylee Sleep graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2008, with a degree in Human Nutritional Science.
