    Nutrition is about eating a healthy and balanced diet. Food and drink provide the energy and nutrients you need to be healthy.

  • What type of clients can I work with?

    Work with people

    who want to improve their diet

    in order to

    optimise their health, lose weight, or achieve a specific exercise-related goal. You will not be able to work with clients who have medical conditions that require specialised dietary advice as this is the role of a dietitian.

     

  • Will I be able to write meal plans?

    As part of this course, you will learn how to write meal plans for a variety of clients.

    The purpose of this is to give a client examples of what a days eating could look like, ensuring that it meets that client’s energy and nutrient needs. It isn’t about prescribing a set way of eating that the client must follow as this approach is rarely the most effective way of helping clients establish long term behaviour change. Our meal planning course explains in what situations a meal plan might be beneficial and what precautions need to be considered.

    You will not be qualified to write meal plans for clients with medical conditions.
