Educational Fitness Solutions Creates Family Nutrition Certificate to Help Tackle Obesity

With obesity still on the rise, EFS releases Online Educational Certificate in Family Nutrition to help educate families, teachers and healthcare professionals on how to make healthier choices
May 27, 2011 - PRLog -- Educational Fitness Solutions (EFS), creator of the online certificates in nutrition, fitness and health, has added an online certificate in Family Nutrition to their educational offerings.  This certificate has been designed to help counteract the current toll overweight and obesity are taking on America today and its legacy of tomorrow by providing guidance for adults in role modeling healthy food choices and exercise behaviors for their children.  This can help protect health care costs, the strength of the nation’s work force, and the happiness and well-being of tomorrow’s citizens from the detrimental affects overweight and obesity can produce. The certificate will also examine the numerous influences that an expecting mother’s food choices, the food choices of the family and friends, and the children’s own food attitudes and behaviors can impact weight and health.

Parents, teachers, allied health/medical and fitness professionals, school administrators, caregivers, and virtually all of those who work with children in school, day care, or in after-school programs can benefit from this certificate, as it provides concrete actions that adults can take in place of simply watching this problem unfold.

“It’s no secret obesity is on the rise for both children and adults”, says Dimitri Onyskow, Director of Academic Relations for EFS.  “Reducing the toll obesity is taking on America is a multi-step process.  A key step is providing education for families, teachers and healthcare professionals regarding how they can make healthier choices and how to support individuals to make a healthy change.”
The Online Certificate in Family Nutrition is a two course program and is offered in partnership with colleges throughout the country.  Registration is open enrollment, meaning students can register for the program at any time and once logged in, students have 8 weeks to complete a course.  The two course curriculum includes:

Course 1:  Healthy Moms and Infant Nutrition
Course 2:  Healthy Children Nutrition:  At the Home, Work and External Environments

Registration can generally be completed online, and once you complete the program you will receive an educational certificate of completion from the college/university you registered through!  For more information or to choose a school to register through, visit our main website:
