eLearning: Nutrition and Healthy Eating

By teaching children healthy eating habits, and modelling these behaviours, you can help children maintain a healthy weight and normal growth. Also, the eating habits your children pick up when they are young will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle when they are adults.
Nutrition and Healthy Eating is aimed at nursery practitioners including cooks and chefs, as everyone has a responsibility to support the health and wellbeing of children they care for.
