Knowledge

There is no point suggesting modifications that need to be made to a diet
if the individual or person responsible for providing food for that
individual does not have the knowledge to understand that change is
necessary and how to make the change. Knowledge about food and nutrition,
i.e. how to choose the most suitable products, store food so that it
remains fresh and select appropriate combinations of food to serve, can be
increased by reading, watching video tapes, following food selection guides
from pamphlets available in supermarkets and community health centres, etc.
Adhering to a suitable food selection model would provide adequate
knowledge for parents responsible for providing meals for children and
adolescents.

Children and adolescents should start to take responsibility for their own
food choices when outside the home. Their knowledge will be based on what
they have learnt in the home and at school.

Adults can read, go to community-based nutrition classes, use computer
programs and access the Internet for more guidance.

Elderly people who have specific needs may require further knowledge from
their medical adviser, a dietitian or health centre.
