Description

Course Syllabus:

  • LESSON 1 -

    Pregnancy

    In this lesson the basics of nutrition are explored with a detailed examination of the food pyramid and food groups. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of food portion and nutritional requirements during pregnancy.

  • LESSON 2 -

    Breast Feeding/Bottle Feeding

    In this lesson the merits for and against both headings are explored in detail so that the student will be fully informed. The ultimate choices depend on both personal preferences and the material facts and this module allows for those decisions.

  • LESSON 3 -

    Feeding Issues

    Feeding issues can create many sleepless nights and heartache for both parent and child. Often times the underlying causes can be readily identified and overcome. This lesson explores many of the most frequent causes such as Colic, Reflux, Constipation and Hungry Baby.

  • LESSON 4 -

    Weaning 6-12 Months

    This stage for many parents is untraveled territory, and even if previously travelled, it can be problematic. This lesson focuses on attempting to ensure this period is the joyous time it is supposed to be rather than the opposite.

  • LESSON 5 -

    Toddler Diet 1-5 Years

    With child obesity and dietary health problems at all-time highs this heading is absolutely crucial. During this lesson the student explores headings such as Healthy Eating and Food Groups, Food Portions, Physical Activity and Drinks & Snacks.

  • LESSON 6 -

    Toddler Diet 5-12 Years

    This lesson is very much a continuation of lesson 5 though specific to the ages of 5-12 where temptations can increase and dietary matters can come the fore.

  • LESSON 7 -

    Weight Management

    The final lesson ensures you understand all core topics and is exclusively focussed on applying those principles in a healthy, maintainable manner long term. We explore areas such as obesity, portion control, anthropometrics, reward systems and we provide many practical tips.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
