National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association’s Kids Nutrition Specialist Training Relaunch

With the growing, alarming rates of kids obesity and diabetes, The National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA) developed a Kids Nutrition Specialist Training to focus on kids-specific nutrition.

PRLog - Dec. 19, 2011 - RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. -- Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – With the growing epidemic of both childhood obesity and childhood diabetes in the United States and across the globe, kid-focused nutrition is more critical than ever. To help train more people in this specialized field of nutrition, the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA) offers an online, self-paced Kids Nutrition Specialist program.

The online Kids Nutrition Specialist training helps create more fun and healthy food choices for kids, with kids’ nutrition games and strategies for overcoming objections to certain foods. The program also includes nutrition tips, tools and strategies for families.

“Better education on nutrition is vital to reduce the growing epidemic of childhood obesity and childhood diabetes in our country,” said Dr. John Spencer Ellis, founder of NESTA and creator of the Kids Nutrition Specialist certification. “This Kids Nutrition Specialist certification helps you reach more kids and families and make healthy eating enjoyable for everyone. With it, you can make a difference in people’s health and their lives while you grow your own fitness and nutrition business.”

The online Kids Nutrition Specialist program includes digital manuals, video lessons and an online exam. The prerequisites for the program are basic knowledge of exercise and nutrition skills, and strong English skills; the certification qualifies for continuing education credits (CEUs) for both the Spencer Institute and NESTA. Most students complete the course in less than a month, although participants have up to a year for completion.

The course also covers the book, “Trim Kids: The Proven 12-Week Plan That Has Helped Thousands of Children Achieve a Healthier Weight,” which is sold separately.
“Eating healthy shouldn’t have to be painful. There are so many ways that eating right can be enjoyable – and delicious – for parents and kids alike,” Ellis added.
