Course Syllabus

The second unit focuses more heavily on the major nutrient classifications, detailing the functions and benefits of several essential nutrients.  Candidates study the roles of fats, fibre, protein and carbohydrates in the body, while exploring food labelling standards and how to analyse nutritional information.

Unit 3 - Balancing the Diet

The concept of dietary balance is investigated at length in the third unit, which details the wide-reaching benefits of maintaining dietary balance and the risks associated with an unbalanced diet. The development of healthy eating plans in accordance with individual requirements and objectives is also discussed.

Unit 4 - Principles of Healthy Eating

Bringing the course to a close, unit four questions the true meaning of ‘healthy’ eating and how it may differ from one person to the next.  Candidates discuss fat content, sugar content and caffeine content, helpful tips for making better dietary choices and the benefits and disadvantages of common food preparation methods.
