Who is this course for?
This course is designed to help anyone who works in a professional capacity with kids around food, body image and feeding - this could be in healthcare, education or community settings.
Nutritionists, dietitians, nursery managers, speech and language therapists, GPs, nurses and child therapists might find this course particularly useful.
I’m a nutrition professional and I’ve taken your Raising Intuitive Eaters course - is there any benefit in taking this course?
Definitely. The Raising Intuitive Eaters course was designed to give parents and caregivers an overview of key concepts regarding child feeding, wider feeding dynamics and to introduce the concept of the Division of Responsibility in feeding.
Our Raising Embodied Eaters course takes a deeper dive into child feeding - digging into the evidence which underpins current recommendations and taking a critical look at some of the motivations which underlie these. We also expand out beyond nutrition to take a look at other important concepts to consider at this stage of development such as attunement, attachment, the development of oral-motor skills and the importance of the feeding relationship.
I’m a nutrition/healthcare professional and want to take this course. Do I have to have taken your earlier CPD (Nutrition Counsellor Series) to benefit from this one?
This course is a stand-alone so you don’t need to have taken any of our previous courses in order to take this one - although they will give you a great foundation!
The Raising Embodied Eaters course explores concepts such as embodiment, intuitive eating, healthism, weight stigma and eating challenges and how they relate to child feeding. If these concepts are new to you, or you’d like to learn more about these specifically for working with adults, you might find our CPD series useful. Likewise, if you plan to work with families and want to support parents or other adults develop a healthier relationship with food, the earlier courses can support you with this work.
I’m a parent/grandparent - is this course suitable for me?
This course is aimed at healthcare professionals, so it will cover topics with that audience in mind; this will cover more geeky details than you will likely need!
If you’re the parent or caregiver of a small person and want to know more about how to feed in an embodied/responsive way, we’ve got you! Our Raising Intuitive Eaters course was designed with exactly you in mind - you can find more about that one here.
Which age group does this course cover?
For this course, we’ve chosen to focus on younger children (roughly 0-13 years) who are reliant on other people to help feed or cook for themselves; as we will be talking about the dynamics of feeding relationships.
Generally speaking, at LCIE we assume people over the age of 18 to be adults and anyone under this age to be a child in accordance with the law in England.
Do I get CPD/CEU credits for taking this course?
Yes, absolutely; you may want to check specifically with your local regulatory body, but for UK based RNutr/RDs, courses do not need to be endorsed in order to qualify as CPD, however, it is up to each individual registrant to record their CPD using the appropriate reflective practice template. AfN are not currently endorsing new courses, but our OG course ‘Applying Intuitive Eating and Non Diet Approaches in Practice’ was previously endorsed for 6 CPD units; we have created the course with professional development standards in mind so are confident that it would receive endorsement when applications are open again.
The Association for Nutrition (AfN) is currently not accepting new applications to register CPD, but you bet we’ll be on it as soon as they are!
Does completing this course qualify me as a nutrition professional?
This course does not qualify you to register as a nutrition professional or call yourself one.
It is not a substitute for appropriate qualification(s) in your relevant field, and you as a clinician are responsible for staying within your scope of practice.
This program is for informational and educational purposes only as part of your continuing professional development (CPD), and is not a substitute for clinical supervision or appropriate clinical registration.
Can I use the materials provided in the course with my clients?
Yes, of course, we just ask you to be respectful of the labour that went into producing them and not to alter/adapt them without prior consent or remove our logo. These materials are copyright so please provide credit!

Yes! On selected courses we have given you the option to split your payments over 2 or 3 months. You decide what works best for you. If those splits don’t work for you, then please email [email protected] and we’ll see what we can do!
Do you offer a scholarship or student discount program?
Due to the heavily reduced pricing of the courses we can no longer offer an additional student discount, but we are still offering payment plans. If you would like to suggest a different payment timeframe, please email [email protected].
How long do I have access to the course materials?
