Abstract: The traditional nutrition education approach which requires students to identify nutrients, vitamins, and minerals is only a small segment of a comprehensive nutrition education program. A comprehensive program calls for a serious look at lifestyles, obesity, exercise, food preference, and various aspects of weight control. Recognizing the importance placed on the role of nutrition, a study was designed to explore the nutrition knowl-edge and attitudes of pre-professional college students. The study population included 114 students enrolled in a course designed for elementary education majors.
