Hi there! Happy Kids Nutrition Academy is built by a team of dietitians who all have Bachelor's degrees in Nutrition and Dietetics from a top university. During our time at school, we took courses in anatomy and physiology that helps us with a strong foundation of how the body works when participating in sports. For the food to be utilized, this happens in the body and our body is a biological system. To learn about food and its nourishing effects one has to know the functions and structures of the human body. So Physiology, the study of the functions of the human body, and Anatomy, the study of the human body are some of the basic science subjects we had to learn to understand the role of food in health and disease. 
Weekly homework and handouts will be assigned for this class. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please be advised that while we will discuss different nutritional principles and training techniques, we will not be providing personalized medical advice to any student. This sports physiology and anatomy course is not designed to offer medical nutrition therapy or any medical advice.

Our goal is to provide your learner with a foundation of knowledge and skills to help them improve their athletic abilities and reduce their risk of injuries. We do not endorse or support any extreme diets, weight loss products or supplements, or performance-enhancing drugs/medications.

We ask that you please provide your learner with adequate resources, such as a healthcare professional, dietician, or personal trainer if they require personalized advice.

Throughout the course, your child will have access to lesson recaps, quizzes, and activities, and all materials will be available on Google Drive. We will also use Canva to create easy-to-understand visual presentations to help your learner absorb the information.

We hope your learner enjoys the course, and please do not hesitate to reach out to our team if you have any concerns or questions.
