Wellbeing and Nutrition

Our team of nutritionists are on a mission to ensure all children have the best possible start in life. Good nutrition is key to support the growth and development of children in the early years and will help to promote positive attitudes and enjoyment of good food into adulthood. Unfortunately, the UK is faced with a number of public health concerns, with over a fifth of the children overweight or obese and more than one in ten three-year-olds have tooth decay. This harsh reality means it’s more important than ever for early years staff to support families in providing a healthy balanced diet for infants and toddlers.

Our team of expert registered nutritionists will provide you with quality training and support that will help you to improve the health outcomes of children and families you work with in your early years setting. Our Online Training is now available. Click here to create your 'My Learning' account! This includes information on healthy eating, physical activity and menu provision in your nursery or childminding setting. Our Association for Nutrition (AfN) Certified Training and Wellbeing and Nutrition Award will provide you with simple and practical resources to help you speak to parents and have the confidence and skills to promote health and wellbeing in your setting.
