Special Diets Brochure for Nutrition Food Science by Buick


									Special Diets Brochure for Nutrition & Food Science

People of any age sometimes have medical problems that call for special diets, while
other people have long-term medical conditions that affect their food needs. Proper
medical treatment allows most of the people to lead normal lives. However, they must be
especially aware of their food choices. To keep a patient’s medical condition under
control, physicians often prescribe a special diet. Special diets require these individuals to
only eat certain foods. Some other diets require individuals to stay away from other food
items. For example, a person allergic to dairy products must not intake any milk products,
such as milk and cheese.

For this project, one day will be spent in the library researching and typing a brochure
about a special diet. If you are working with a partner, then one person can take one side
of the 3-page or page and the other person can type the other side. You should make sure
that your name is on your side with the title of the special diet.
