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
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!
