About this course
This training will show how good nutrition is a fundamental part of caring for children, especially those who are under 5 years old.
Nutrition 1 - Healthy Eating in the Early Years-Why it Matters
This module covers key nutritional guidelines for all food groups. It also includes the differences between nutritional needs of children and adults. It then covers all you need to know about planning balanced menus and the portion sizes you should be providing.
Nutrition 2 Special Diets and Fussy Eaters
This module covers what you need to know about catering for special diets. It explains the difference between food intolerance and food allergy and what you need to do about this in your setting regarding serving foods and your legal responsibilities.
The module then explores food preferences and what influences children’s preferences. It gives hints and tips to cater for fussy eaters and explains when you need to seek expert help for extreme fussy eaters. Lastly this module includes information about effective weaning including baby led weaning.
I particularly found the information regarding fussy eaters extremely useful. I wish I had know this when my own children were small. Being able to buy both courses at a discount is an added bonus
