Diet, nutrition and fitness are three of the most important factors in childhood learning and development. Knowing how to balance food and exercise to the recommended guidelines can make a big difference. Furthermore, it promotes a healthier lifestyle, better mental health, and lowers the risk of future health problems. Our Child Nutrition Level 3 course teaches the foundations of dietetics and physical health. As a result, you’ll know how to support the growth and development of children in your care.
Children require good nutrition because they’re growing, developing and are often very active. Therefore, it’s important to shape children’s attitudes towards food in early childhood. As without the proper nutrition, children risk developing disorders like rickets. That’s why our course studies the value of healthy food for kids.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your home study course I have just completed, I found the course provided me with new skills and would definitely use you again
I find it so convenient that it can be done in my own time under no pressure.
As an overweight adult i didn’t want my children going through (and they are headed that way) what i had so i needed to educate myself. Thought this course was very informative, and excellent value for money as i have seen the same course on other websites for a lot more.
I would describe myself as a very healthy eater and maintain my physical wellbeing. I have 3 children and a wife, this course has helped me and my wife dramatically with understanding what foods and nutrition us and the kids should be consuming.
Enjoyed studying the course, love how it doesn’t really matter if one-night i’m busy or just can not be bothered after working all day and coming home to my 2 children the course has also made a difference in the way my children eat, Thank you Oxbridge.
