There are many reasons for taking this course, including as a parent who wants to make the best possible dietary decisions for yourself and your children, or as an individual who is interested in a career in child nutrition advising. In a society when processed meals lack any nutritional value, teaching a child good eating is a tremendous gift. It expands their options for what to consume and how to control their health, reducing the risk of chronic diseases. This is the subject that will be covered in this course. It examines the physical, mental, and social benefits of particular diets for children.
