Service providers who receive high nutrition risk referrals, particularly Registered Dietitians, need to be knowledgeable about general and clinical pediatric nutrition as well as counseling skills for working with families and children.
Five self-directed training modules have been developed and evaluated to respond to this need.
All users must read and follow the Preschool Nutrition Primers for RDs Terms and Conditions of Use.
All training modules and background materials can be downloaded here free of charge.
