About this course

2 day course (applicants must attend both days)

The two day training course covers consistent healthy eating messages with a focus on nutritional guidelines for the target audience within Kent. Topics will include: the Eatwell Guide and food groups, fats, sugars and salt, food labelling, eating healthily on a budget, hydration and fussy eating as well as links to reliable nutrition resources.

Food Champion trainees are then supported for one year to plan and deliver three healthy eating initiatives within their workplace or community. This support also includes lesson plans, resources and peer observation to ensure the information is delivered in an effective way. The two day training course which is certified by the Association for Nutrition covers consistent healthy eating messages with a focus on nutritional guidelines for the target audience.

Please note: This course is currently free of charge. However, a charge of £200 will be made to the organisation should the food champion trainee withdraw from the programme following the training and fail to complete the three healthy eating initiatives.

Target group

  • A key worker or volunteer who provides basic healthy eating information within their community.
