With a rapidly growing natural health industry, and increasing awareness surrounding nutrition and its importance to both overall health and disease prevention, Sprott Shaw College’s new Nutritional Consulting program equips graduates to enter this exciting field of healthcare.
The Sprott Shaw Nutritional Consulting program provides students with a comprehensive nutritional program that incorporates holistic nutritional principles. Holistic Nutrition focuses on the individual “as a whole” when determining a sound nutritional program. This means that healthy lifestyle practices to improve physical, emotional, and spiritual health are all components in improving an individual’s overall well-being. Holistic nutrition looks at both the scientific benefits of various foods and nutrients, and also the quality and type of food sources that should be incorporated into the diet.
Sprott Shaw College’s program covers the necessary scientific background, and principles of nutrition and holistic health in a comprehensive format, ensuring that students receive the highest quality of education using reputable resources from our publishers. We also include several valuable courses on providing nutritional education, counselling, and business entrepreneurship; as well as provide students with additional training to obtain certifications of First Aid / CPR, and FoodSafe. This sets us apart from other similar programs in this industry, and adds to the potential opportunities in both the food and healthcare industries, as well as increases the credentials and credibility obtained by our graduates.
