Course Outline:

The Children’s Nutrition course is a comprehensive course which explains the nutritional needs of children from pre-natal, infant to adolescent stages.

As a parent or caregiver you need to be aware of what you are teaching your children about nutrition.

This is a must course for people working in the health and nutrition industry and also for people who work with children.

This course has been written by a qualified dietician and a nutritionist.

The difference between a good course and a bad course lies in the way you are assessed. Our assessments are designed is such a way that the student feels confident to move forward in the course as they complete each assessment. The feedback from the tutor not only reaffirms the student’s learning process but also gives an opportunity to the student to interact with the tutor regularly. Students are never penalised when their assignment work needs to be improved, rather they are given constructive feedback and requested to resubmit the section where they need improvement. Students do their assignment work at their own pace within the course duration and are not restricted by any deadlines which is the beauty of self-paced learning. The assessments will make the certificate achieved more credible and valuable to the student.

This course has approximately 8-10 assignments and 1 exam to complete the course successfully. You can opt out of the exam and receive a Certificate of Participation.
