We teach you everything you need to set up a reputable nutrition coaching business and begin or further develop your career as a successful, qualified Nutrition Coach.
Why Nutrition Coaching?
Nutrition is the most important aspect of our health. Poor diet and nutrition is at the heart of suboptimal health and chronic disease. Globally health status has never been worse. Healthy eating aids in reversing chronic disease and is the key to preventative health.
Mainstream medical practitioners are not trained in nutrition. The healthcare system requires support from those that have a deep knowledge of nutrition, that they are able to apply practically, helping people change their eating habits.
Even when we know what we should be eating, sometimes obstacles prevent us from achieving our goals. A Nutrition Coach helps guide and set attainable goals driving behaviour change and better health.
What is a Nutrition Coach?
A Nutrition Coach guides in healthy eating, supporting people to use food to manage their health. They guide on ingredients and types of foods as well as create recipes and meal plans to support specific health areas.
“Poor diet causes more disease than physical activity, alcohol and smoking combined.”

The Sano Difference
We believe that everyone should have the right to good nutrition based on their dietary preferences, personal circumstances and health concerns. Every single person is unique and should not need to ‘fit’ into prescribed dietary models. There are hundreds of dietary models and ‘ways of eating’ that are taught by nutrition schools. Instead, our curriculum and teaching approach enables our Nutrition Coach graduates to create individual personalised dietary guidance. Personalised nutrition is the future and results in clients achieving their goals and maintaining better health.
Learning nutritional science is only the first step in the journey to help yourself and others achieve their health goals. What is equally important is the practical application of nutrition to ingredients, food and meals. We teach you nutritional science and then how to apply this in a way that is relevant to people’s everyday lives helping them to easily make healthy food choices. You learn how to translate nutritional science into an everyday language and practical medium that is understandable, appealing and relevant to the individual. This helps drive behaviour change and achieve optimal health.
We ensure that all our graduates are equipped with the skills to keep up to date with relevant and accurate food and nutrition information. New discoveries are made every day as to how the body works, how it is impacted by food and nutrition and ultimately affects health. It is important to have the skills to analyse and interpret new research and be able to make it relevant to people’s everyday lives. Our graduates have those skills and we continue to support them with post-graduate training.
