It covers such topics as : What constitutes a healthy diet, Government nutritional guidelines, food processing and additives, nutrients and their function in the body, specific dietary needs of individuals, plus much more.
Claire Whiles, director of Nutritrain Southwest said "I am absolutely thrilled for the students. This is the highest result they could achieve in the exam and they all very much deserve their success."
