GET CERTIFIED IN CHILDHOOD NUTRITION!
CEC / Specialization Course
Learn About the Impact of Nutrients on Growth & Development. Designed to Help Children Thrive.
Despite awareness on the part of parents to growing rates of obesity and inactivity with children, many parents are still confused about what makes for healthy childhood nutrition. What is a healthy intake, and how do we guarantee that the food their eating is nutritionally dense?
After completing the course you will receive a certificate of completion. Once you complete all required courses in any of our programs, you will receive a professional, officially stamped diploma in the mail listing your designation.

Studies have been consistently shown that children who eat a healthy breakfast and those who have high nutrients status do better in school and report less behavioral problems than their undernourished counterparts.
Concern is rapidly on the rise over the eating habits of our children. This is in part due to the increasing rates of obesity, type 2 diabetes, ADHD, over medicated children, and autism in this group; in addition to the awareness of how the health of our youngest generation will drastically impact the future.
Many parents and caregivers find nutrition confusing, and seek information from a wide array of sources – often conflicting. It is critical that the focus on childhood nutrition grows and practitioners have solid expertise in this area.
This course should be completed within 6 weeks based on 7-10 hours per week of study time, but you may complete sooner if you have more time available for learning. You have a maximum of 12 months to complete the full Holistic Nutrition Coach program if you are taking this course as part of the program.
