Course Description

If you want to develop your knowledge of Nutrition for Young Children so that you can embark on a rewarding career or maybe you are already working in a related field and want to improve your career prospects, then this is the course for you.

Nutrition is very important for everyone, but it is especially important for children because it is directly linked to all aspects of their growth and development; factors which will have direct ties to their level of health as adults. For example, a child with the right balance of omega fatty acids in their daily diet has a much better chance at creating a more solid foundation for their brain activity and capabilities later on. Likewise, a child who practices a low fat and cholesterol diet on a daily basis significantly improves their chances of preventing a heart attack; even if heart disease tends to be hereditary within your family.

You will also help promote a better quality of life if you instill proper nutrition trends in your children. It will allow them to partake in more activities and with greater enjoyment. People with high levels of health also consistently report that they enjoy elevated feelings of wellness and wellbeing. As part of this, children are also able to fight off colds with improved efficiency with the support of proper nutrition.

The Distance Learning Nutrition for Young Children course will help you gain a detailed understanding of what constitutes a balanced diet when caring for young children, starting from pregnancy, right up to the age of five. You will evaluate diets for balance and promote healthier food choices, whilst having an awareness of the issues that make healthy eating quite difficult for young children and their parents.
