When say nutrition then it has a wide meaning for good health. So everyone has to take nutrition rich food or balanced diet.

Agree! Nutrition is key, and is always the main thing focused on in any decent wellness / fitness program - as they say, abs are made in the kitchen!

If anyone's interested, here is a free short course called "Food as Medicine" run by Monash University that explores nutritional science:

When we talk nutrition many times the conversation turns to natural foods. Although I recommend that people eat a more healthy diet I also try to educate them that you aren’t getting the nutrition from your food today like you were fifty years ago. Here is an excerpt from an article in Scientific American that discusses this very topic, “ The Organic Consumers Association cites several other studies with similar findings: A Kushi Institute analysis of nutrient data from 1975 to 1997 found that average calcium levels in 12 fresh vegetables dropped 27 percent; iron levels 37 percent; vitamin A levels 21 percent, and vitamin C levels 30 percent. A similar study of British nutrient data from 1930 to 1980, published in the British Food Journal,found that in 20 vegetables the average calcium content had declined 19 percent; iron 22 percent; and potassium 14 percent. Yet another study concluded that one would have to eat eight oranges today to derive the same amount of Vitamin A as our grandparents would have gotten from one.“.
So yes eat better but continue to use quality supplements to enhance your health.
