Childcare professionals

Welcome to the Child Feeding Guide digital support resource.

Our online course is moving to a new platform so is temporarily unavailable for new users. Email us to be notified when it's ready for new sign-ups.

The Child Feeding Guide provides information about common feeding pitfalls experienced by caregivers.  As a childcare professional, you have a responsibility for feeding children and are likely to encounter many of these feeding pitfalls.  You can use this information to help to promote healthier eating behaviours in the children in your care.

The Child Feeding Guide also shares an array of effective tips and tools which you can use to promote healthy eating in the children you look after.

You might also find it useful to share the Child Feeding Guide with the families of children in your care, directing them to the dedicated information for parents/caregivers. In addition, users can create a profile and complete some initial assessments.  You and your colleagues, or the families of children who you care for, might find these useful for monitoring progress.

In addition, newly launched online training for childcare professionals is available to further support you and your colleagues with helping to improve fussy eating habits or supporting children who eat a limited selection of foods.  This training includes interactive activities and tests of your knowledge.
