About the Meal Planning Certification

This course takes you through the broad aspects of meal planning. To successfully support clients’ goals, a holistic view of nutrition is needed.

The first two modules give you an overview of the dietary components that make up healthy eating patterns.

With knowledge of what the body needs to function optimally, the course goes on to tackle the main nutritional assessment tools that you can use in your diagnosis of areas of dietary improvement.

These nutritional assessment tools go hand-in-hand with nutritional strategies that encourage a change in eating behaviours and food choices. The nutritional strategies covered vary in their suitability for clients of different profiles, so they can be used depending on the level of client readiness and their commitment to change.

Finally, the course explores how to determine the credibility of a source. This gives you the confidence to advise clients appropriately and provide sound nutritional advice.
