Why Study Diet and Nutrition?

Worldwide, men and women of all ages are beginning to accept that we are what we eat.  It’s common knowledge that our bodies require the carefully-balanced intake of key nutrients to perform their most important functions.  Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to achieve optimum directory balance.  As we’re all unique, the same can also be said for our nutritional requirements.  From babies to children to teenagers to adults to seniors to pregnant women, the human body’s nutritional requirements vary wildly from one person to the next.  Precisely where the services of the professional nutritionist come in - provided to help everyone achieve optimum dietary balance.  The result of which can be better health, more enjoyment of life and a significantly longer lifespan.

Course Syllabus

We create open and accessible courses for candidates committed to their continuous professional development.  The perfect introductory course for newcomers, this Level 1 Certificate in Diet and Nutrition explores the subject and the profession across a series of three fascinating units:

Unit 1 - An Overview of Nutrition

The basics of human nutrition are explored at length in the first unit, which details the connection between our dietary habits and our wider wellbeing.  Several arguments in favour of healthy eating are presented and discussed, along with the concept of the body mass index (BMI) and how to ensure the body’s daily energy requirements are fulfilled.

Unit 2 - Dietary Nutrition

A more detailed look at the major nutrient categories follows in the second unit, which details the roles and functions of dietary fibre, the different types of fats, various sources of protein and carbohydrates.  Candidates also learn about food labelling and how to effectively analyse nutritional information.

Unit 3 - Principles of Healthy Eating

Bringing the course to a close, the third unit seeks to define what ‘healthy’ eating actually means.  Learners study the advantages and disadvantages of various food preparation methods, along with the importance of carefully considering fat content, sugar content, caffeine content and more.
