Training
Programme
August 2010 to June 2011
Introduction
    Our Philosophy and our Courses
This Food and Health Training Programme aims to provide a comprehensive overview
and basic training in several topics related to nutrition and health. The types and amount
of food people choose to eat has a profound effect on both their short and long-term
health. We are currently in the midst of an obesity epidemic with almost two thirds of
adults and one third of children overweight or obese. Future projections predict that these
trends are due to continue rising unless serious action is taken.

We believe promoting good nutrition from the start is everyone’s responsibility. Our
courses provide up-to-date, evidence-based information and practical advice to enable
participants to present consistent healthy eating messages and create a supportive
environment. Together, we can make a difference.

All our courses are free of charge at Crompton Health Centre, unless otherwise stated.
However, please check the specific course dates and times to be sure. Lunch is not
provided, but there is access to a refrigerator and staff room. refreshments will be
provided throughout the day.

We do ask that if you are unable to attend that you let us know by telephone or
email at the earliest opportunity so we are able to give your place to someone else.
