Nutrition for Oral Health in the Early Years


A child’s first experiences with oral health can impact on the rest of their life.

There has been a change in EYFS framework in the form of a new addition to the welfare requirements where settings are now required to promote the “good oral health of children”.

In this course we will look at the nutritional influences that support good dental health, it isn’t just about calcium, we’ll go a little deeper.

There will be some practical advice on types of foods that should (and perhaps should not) be included for good oral health.

As with every element of early years nutrition – shaping these early habits has a big influence on a child’s lifelong relationship with food and forms part of their health journey.
