Good nutrition is essential to give a child the best possible start in life, and to prevent a range of serious health conditions. This Association for Nutrition certified interactive e-learning course covers the varying dietary requirements of children, from birth through to adolescence.

The course also deals extensively with the issue of childhood obesity and how this can be prevented and managed. Currently in the UK, roughly one in three children leave primary school either overweight or obese. Understanding why children become overweight, and being able to design effective, evidence-based programmes that target these causes is key in reversing this trend.
