Become an approved Meal & Menu Planner
One of the areas of food coaching so rarely discussed. At last you can learn all the ins and outs of how to plan meals and menus for yourself, your family or for clients. This 4-unit program takes you through the tools of gathering client eating information, analysing eating habits, how to create a healthful eating plan – including creating and assessing recipes for clients, and how to monitor progress.
Using your nutrition knowledge from this program, you’ll review current eating for healthfulness with your client. Together, you’ll pinpoint areas to improve, coming up with ideas and better options. You’ll then pull together all the information and place into a meal plan your client has effectively driven, but you have collated and prepared.
We provide you with extensive tools and templates, plus a months free access to one of the best meal planning software around. This course uses a handy app to drop recipes and meals into and plan for a day, week, month or longer. You will find that this sort of food coaching technique is very powerful in helping clients make positive, permanent health choices.
