What Will You Learn?

The Nutrition For Kids Course teaches learners aged 7-14 about following a balanced diet. It covers all of the major nutrients in detail, explaining in simple, easy-to-understand terms how each one helps the body, why we need it and what happens if we don’t get enough of each nutrient.

This course teaches you about macronutrients and the role they play in fuelling the body, giving us energy to play, learn and grow. It also covers the importance of micronutrients and how they ‘unlock’ the macronutrients in the body.

We’ll look at exercise, the role it plays in healthy eating, and activities you may like to get involved in. Special diets are also briefly covered and the course offers exercises and activities to help the learning ‘stick’.

Practical cooking exercises are included, so you will need access to a kitchen, plus some equipment and ingredients. All the recipes are child-friendly and can be made (with adult supervision) by most children.

You will be encouraged to reflect on how eating certain foods makes you feel and to keep a food journal – reviewing it regularly as you learn to identify healthy choices and plan balanced meals.

The course concludes by guiding you through planning a week’s worth of healthy meals in a menu-planning exercise.

The course does not discuss weight loss or calorie counting—instead, it focuses on food as fuel. It is based on current nutritional guidelines for children aged 1-18 and includes information on portion sizes, food labelling and hydration.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the major nutrients and how they fuel the body
  • Follow practical cooking exercises
  • Learn how and why you should keep a food journal
  • Discover how to plan healthy meals
  • Take fun quiz assessments
  • Receive a certificate upon completion

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

Children and younger teenagers who are interested in food, or who would like to make healthier choices, will benefit most from this course. They will be empowered to make their own choices based on the latest information and to seek out healthy choices as they become more independent when making their own decisions about food.

Children will be encouraged to become more involved in cooking, shopping and planning meals, and children who are growing a little older and becoming teenagers will be equipped with essential knowledge on how to fuel and heal their growing bodies at this crucial time.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
