For instance, the cookery and nutrition course, will teach you which foods to add to your diet, as well as how to cook them. The tutor will guide you on how to make healthy meals for you and your family, and give you tips on how to boost their nutritional content with vitamins and minerals. This course is ideal if you want to know this information for yourself or eve if you are considering a future career in the nutrition sector.
The course on health, wellbeing and successful ageing is designed to give you the tools you need to stay fit and healthy as you get older. It will teach you about the food to incorporate into your diet and the types of exercise that will keep you feeling fit.
