The Science of Nutrition
Tuesday 25 October 20:00–21:00 BST
In this MyNutriBookClub, we’ll read and review the Sunday Times bestselling book, ‘The Science of Nutrition’ written by leading registered nutritionist, Rhiannon Lambert.

The book’s easily digestible and evidence-based advice can be a helpful tool to support students studying nutrition related subjects, and for experienced healthcare professionals to use to in practice to empower clients and patients to explore the benefits and importance of nutrition in more detail and help to navigate the misleading information available when it comes to the world of food and diet.
