Nanny Cooking Course – Introduction to food and nutrition for children and young people
This accredited cooking course is suitable for Nannies, Domestic Workers, Housekeepers and Au Pairs wishing to become more confident and gain skills in preparing healthy food for babies, toddlers and children.
Courses have been designed by a leading nutritionist with extensive experience working with children and families privately at her clinic in Harley St, as well as with local authorities and charities throughout the UK.
This cooking course will enable childcarers to demonstrate to employers that they are competent in preparing nutritional food for children and have a good understanding of food hygiene, allergies, diets for different religious groups, and managing fussy eaters.
Candidates can opt to complete a small piece of course work and achieve a level 3 qualification through Open College Network London.
This course has helped me to be confident in preparing food for children. Teacher explained very well in a non-boring way. I found the parts on food hygiene and good fats particularly useful because they were the ones I knew less about.
Course is very useful. The trainer was very knowledgeable and gave me lots of great advice and ideas to use in preparing food.
