Lack of awareness in the masses about their nutritional needs and dietary practices is prevalent at an alarming rate in Pakistan, especially people do not know ‘what to eat’, ‘when to eat’, ‘how much to eat’ and how often to eat. School of Nutrition was founded in 2014 with the passion to make a difference in people’s lives at all levels of our society by providing services that educates on proper nutrition and allows them to enjoy being healthy hassle free!
With the aim to bridge the gaps between nutritional status and health, we at School of Nutrition, are working from individual to communities, addressing significant contemporary issues such as food insecurity, dietary patterns and disease prevention, nutrition education and health promotion, bio-active food components, and reproductive nutrition. One of the major components of our activities at School of Nutrition is “Nutrition Entrepreneurship”. We believe that nutritionists can play major role not only in clinics but at community level and start their businesses as well.
We believe in Team work and I am proud to have a young lot who are achieving big goals on daily basis!

We live in a time in which nutrition is a pivotal factor in changing the trajectory of public health around the globe. Critical public health issues from food insecurity to obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and child health can be touched by nutrition research, from the cellular level to epidemiology, interventions and public policy. School of Nutrition is moving from discovery to delivery, where we train students in nutritional sciences, clinical nutrition, community nutrition and food & nutrition to become global leaders in their fields. Our areas of focus are balanced by a commitment to research that improves the health of minority and under-served populations. We continue to expand reach and challenge ourselves to uphold our mission to improve health through nutrition in Pakistan and share these good practices with our counterparts around the world by giving unique and purposeful experience and education that will translate into successful careers in Nutrition, health and beyond.
