The controversial topic of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is one which has divided the globe.

Some argue that GM crops hold the answer to world hunger, while others insist they are an abomination of nature, and a serious threat to public health and the environment.

With all of the loud voices shouting for and against GM foods, it can be very challenging for us to even understand exactly what GMOs are, let alone whether they present an emerging threat or a developing opportunity.

So, which is it?

Does consuming GM foods pose a genuine health risk? Or are there actually potential public health benefits to GMO production?

Could it be both? And, can you believe everything you read, either pro or against GMOs?

In this one-of-a-kind expert report, we investigate the latest research to offer you a neutral review of both sides of the GMO argument, so that you can learn the science of genetic engineering, digest the facts behind the fears, and decide for yourself.

You will not find anything like our examination freely on the internet. We go to the core of the scientific literature, leaving no stone unturned.

[CPD Certified Webinar] Child and Family Nutrition Strategies for Your Practice

“How do I know if my child is getting all the right nutrients for proper growth?”

 “Should I worry about feeding my kids the wrong foods for learning and mood control?”

“Our family dinner is a tantrum-loaded warzone… is picky eating solvable at all?”

Speech challenges, learning delays, stunted growth, irrational tantrums, short-fused aggression, hyperactivity, a lack of attention… they can all have a dietary element underneath.

What a little boy or little girl eats can deeply affect their mood, memory, and brain development – with long-lasting consequences carried into adulthood.

So how does diet shape a growing child? And in what ways may you help parents, caretakers, and teachers with the nutrition of little ones?

Completing this CPD-certified training will equip you with vital knowledge underpinning how food can impact your client’s child neurologically, emotionally, and intellectually – alongside insights about adequately running child nutrition programs to best support little boys and girls with their developmental needs.

Here’s what you will discover in this CPD Certified Webinar:

  • Why nutrition and health practitioners should gain a deep insight into child nutrition science when working with parents, caretakers, and teachers
  • Importance of custom-building child nutrition plans considering gender, age, height, weight, and other calculations
  • How adding child nutrition programs to your practice can help clients with the developmental needs of their little ones
  • Advantages of becoming an Advanced Child and Brain Development Nutritional Advisor™ and integrating child nutrition into your work with our Level 5 Certification
  • Personalisation methods and planning tools to use when running your own child nutrition programs to support parents, caretakers, sports clubs, and schools
