I have used this site for over ten years for required readings in my post-baccalaurate nutrition courses for professional and graduate students. The content is especially thorough regarding evidence-based recommendations on dietary macronutrients (carbs, protein, fats) as part of a healthy diet. Also strong are sections on body weight, salt, and beverages. Vitamins and minerals are less thoroughly covered (for those I use the Linus Pauling Micronutrient Information center at http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/infocenter/).The database is regularly updated and expanded, most recently a separate linked site on obesity prevention has been developed at http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/obesity-prevention-source/This resource should be categorized under Health Sciences Preventive Medicine and Nutrition as well.Technical Remarks:The database is regularly updated and expanded. For that reason, any learning activities or exam questions based on the content may need to be revised if the content changes.
