This online module is CPD Accredited with the CPD Accreditation Service.

Getting it right regarding healthy eating for our young children has never been more high profile. This training will show how good nutrition is a fundamental part of caring for children, especially those who are under 5 years old.

There are 2 Nutrition modules available to you.

Nutrition 1 Healthy Eating in the Early Years-Why it Matters and Nutrition 2 Special Diets and Fussy Eaters

You should access both parts, although they can be completed in any order. Each module is £20 or you can buy both together by chosing the Nutrition 1 and 2 product in the shop for only £30.

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.
