I know very little about nutrition outside of the food pyramid

Dear Leanne,
I am very concerned with my family`s nutrition. I would like to set a good example for my son and daughter but find that I know very little about nutrition outside of the food pyramid.

Are there any courses that would set me and my family on the nutritional track?
Many Thanks
Concerned Mum

Leann...
Answer: Hi There, Well done to you for wanting more information on nutrition. Not that I am the only one offering courses, but my company does offer a great nutrition course which covers nutrients, kids nutrition, weight loss, sports nutrition and much more. It is also linked in with diplomas in naturopath and nutrition so you can use it as a pathway if you wanted to learn more. Its our most popular course as it covers sooooo much and has something for the whole family. My site is www.cadencehealth.com.au and the course is called `The Certificate of Diet and Nutrition`. Otherwise simply google nutrition courses and you will see the array out there. Our course is by correspondence but there are also lots of courses out there that you can do via face-to-face. Some local community colleges also offer healthy eating courses at night, which are lots of fun. So just depends on how you want to study and for how long. Feel free to email for a prospectus if it helps. All the best to you and for your studies, its such an empowering thing to understand what it is to eat well. All the best, Leanne
