Are you confident in your ability to manage dietary requirements?

10248NAT - Course in Dietary Requirement Awareness and Safety


This course was created by Sprout Training through recognition of the increase in consumer demand for foods that meet individual dietary requirements and the fact that accredited and scientifically supported training programs in the area of dietary requirement management, prior to this course being created, did not exist.  

Sprout Training has drawn on its nutrition science knowledge and food service experience to work collaboratively with the food and hospitality industry to create a course designed to improve the food industry’s knowledge, understanding and management of dietary requirements. 

The purpose of 10248NAT Course in dietary requirements awareness and safety is to provide the skills and knowledge to those within food preparation environments to safely and appropriately manage consumers' dietary requirements. The ultimate goal is to ensure that anyone with a dietary requirement feels safe and confident when eating away from their home and that they are able to enjoy positive and stress-free food experiences knowing that their dietary requirements have been appropriately and sensitively accommodated. This is turn will have a positive influence on the food culture and food business within Australia.
