Food and nutrition
Nutrition rhymes with nutrition only when i foods assumed are balanced, rich in substances that can regenerate the body and keep it in health.
To be clear, precooked foods, prepackaged, super refined on the model of those of the fast food, are part of our diet but have no nutritional effects of any kind. They only provide "empty calories": Energy and substances that can even poison and make our body sick. We are more and more super-powered ma under-fed, in constant lack of vitamins, minerals and fibers.
Our example must be small children and wild animals. In them food is nutrition: they eat only the foods that they "like", that is instinctively they recognize as nutritious and healthy, they do not eat more than necessary, if they are sick they do not eat.
