Nutrition for Children Course

Nutrition for Children Course

Course Description

Nutrition for kids is based on exactly the same ideas as nutrition for adults. Everyone needs the same kinds of things, such as vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein as well as fat. These are called nutrients. Children need different amounts of particular nutrients at different ages.

The very best eating pattern for a child’s growth and development takes into account the child’s age, activity level together with other characteristics. Food that is packed with nutrients — with no or restricted sugar, saturated fat, or salt added to it — is considered to be nutrient dense. Concentrating on nutrient-dense foods helps kids get the nutrients they need while limiting overall calories.

If you’re a nutritionist who is looking to improve your knowledge of nutrition for children – or you’re a personal trainer who specialises in training kids – then this course is for you.

Why is Kids’ Nutrition Important?

Nutrition is important at every age. Kids need proper nutrients in order to stay healthy and strong, as well as grow up healthy and strong. Nutrition for kids can also assist with establishing a solid foundation for healthy eating habits and nutritional knowledge that children can apply throughout life.
