Nutritional Deficiency

WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY?

Nutritional deficiency occurs when there is an insufficient amount of one or more nutrients (vitamins and minerals) in the body. Each person is an individual and will have different nutrient requirements. It is about balance, moderation, variety, adequacy, and knowing what food is right for your body.
