Understand Early Years Nutrition And How To Adopt Healthy Eating Habits

A healthy diet actually begins in the womb, but it is built on throughout our lives. However, at no time is this more important than in childhood. This course provides tools to parents and those who want to make a profession out of child nutritional consulting, which will help you to understand early years nutrition and how to adopt healthy eating habits and diets.

The course begins by giving you a good grounding in what nutrition actually is. You’ll learn about the difference between macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients, the various categories of nutrition, why nutrition is important to a daily diet, and the different ways it creates health in a child.

From the introduction, the course moves on to look at the specifics of nutrition in children. You’ll learn about the nutritional requirements of babies and children of all ages, in particular the different macro- nutrients and micro-nutrients that are particularly important for different age groups, and the food sources for each. You will also be made aware of the nutritional requirements and proportions set by the UK government.

While it can be more difficult for children raised on a primarily plant-based diet to reach all their nutritional requirements, it is possible, with the right knowledge. The course looks at vegetarian and vegan diets and the careful planning that must be applied when preparing these diets for children and breast-feeding mothers.

You will learn about food allergies and other food-related issues in children, including what a food allergy is and how it is caused, the difference between a food allergy and food sensitivity or intolerance, and how to recognise and deal with food allergies in babies and older children, along with details on how to treat them.

As children grow, their nutritional requirements change, as does their ability to choose the foods they eat. From gestation to pre-teen, the Child Nutrition Course guides you through each stage of a child’s life, explaining what they need, how to encourage them to make healthy food choices as they grow, and which “super foods” are child-friendly, along with some cooking ideas and recipes that incorporate these foods. Also included is how to help children who become “picky eaters” and how to help children who have weight issues, whether they are overweight or underweight.

In addition to providing the information needed to understand child nutrition, the course also goes on to explain what it is to be an expert or consultant in child nutrition and the different ways to work in this field. You’ll be guided through creating a business strategy and what you can do to stand out from the crowd. In addition, you are also provided with a blueprint for developing your own nutritional coaching format and templates for tools that you may need in your work as a child nutritionist.

The course also includes a short bonus video that delivers practical advice and quick tips that parents or consultants can use straight away.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will:

  • Have a comprehensive knowledge of key nutritional requirements across all childhood ages
  • Understand what constitutes a healthy diet for children
  • Know the difference between macronutrients and micronutrients and the importance of both
  • Understand food allergies, and how to spot and treat them
  • Know what nutrients must be included in healthy plant-based diets and why
