Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

To maintain good health and prevent chronic diseases, adequate nutrition is essential. Adequate intake, a formal reference value, is the best scientific estimate of the amount of a nutrient that similar individuals should consume. It is determined not only by the food quality and access but also by knowledge and nutritional practice during life stages. For example, nutrition requirements vary in pregnancy and in the elderly and between men and women according to their bodies’ physiological differences. Excessive consumption of some nutrients might be as unhealthy as not consuming enough. Therefore, adherence to healthy diets recommended in different life stages is necessary.

In this Special Issue on “Nutritional Adequacy and Health Outcome” of Nutrients (IF 5.9), we welcome original articles that examine healthy diets, nutrients, or dietary patterns, in terms of adequacy and their associations with chronic disease, as well as related education and knowledge.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in IJERPH.
