The Culinary Nutrition & Food Studies (CNFS) Minor provides students the ability to explore the foundation of nutritional sciences and gain a practical appreciation of the culinary arts while building an understanding of our food environment & culture as it applies to human health. The CNFS Minor offers students hands-on learning experiences in culinary arts and the flexibility to incorporate study abroad coursework via the UNH in Italy program.

The CNFS Minor may be of interest to students preparing for future careers in allied health or health promotion and who recognize the growing need for training in culinary nutrition.  Dietitians, physicians, wellness coaches, nurses, and other health care providers with strong culinary skills will likely be better equipped to empower clients to choose and prepare healthier food choices.
