Diet and Nutrition Awareness Training

The Diet and Nutrition Awareness course is tailored to enable staff in a range of care settings to assist their clientele in appropriately selecting their food and drink and assisting with consumption.

Delegates will come away from our course with a clear understanding of how to assess each client’s individual needs, including the key minerals and nutrients they may require. They will also learn ways to vary their clients’ diets and the impacts of good and bad nutrition on the body and health. In addition, the attendees will learn about malnutrition and how it affects the mind and body.
