Focus on Food Groups

For a child to receive all the nutrients they need, you just need to make sure they get the right amount of foods from the different food groups – throughout the day.

This course helps to turn the science of nutrition into real foods. So, when you are giving them a Shepherd’s Pie and peas you’ll understand that you are also giving them their daily requirements of Iron, high quality protein and starchy carbohydrates.

You’ll also know that by serving the peas you’ll be giving them vitamin C which helps them absorb more of the iron from the lamb mince and if you add some milk to the mash potato topping you’ll be giving them a little extra calcium too.

Everything you need to plan balanced menus and recipes.
