Discuss the inter-relationship between diet and health/ill health Health is shaped by eating a balanced diet with the right combination and quantity of nutrients. Achieving optimum nutrition through a varied healthy balanced diet leads to health, wellbeing and normal development, but under- nutrition and over- nutrition can lead to serious health problems (Gibney, 2009, p. 4). Calories, macronutrients (in the form of carbohydrate, protein and fat) and micronutrients (in the form of vitamins and minerals) as well as fibre and water are essential components for a balanced diet. Nutrients are categorised into basic foodstuffs: bread, cereal rice and pasta: fruit and vegetables: dairy products: meat, fish and other sources of protein. A healthy balanced diet consists of sufficient quantities of each of these food groups in the correct proportions.
