REHIS Food & Health is a nationally recognised certificated course which provides training in the principles of good nutrition and getting a healthy, balanced diet. Our highly qualified team of friendly and approachable Associate Nutritionists have wide experience of delivering REHIS training to people from different backgrounds and all levels of experience. This interesting and useful course is packed with clearly delivered information that aims to cut through all the mixed messages around nutrition. It is suitable for anyone who is interested in food & health, from catering staff, those working in food production, from those in caring & voluntary situations involving food to anyone with a personal interest.


What do you get out of it?


  • Understanding of general nutrition & practical knowledge for work and home
  • Understand the consequences of eating habits on health and disease
  • Discuss the roles of carbohydrates, protein, fruit & vegetables, fat and fibre
  • Understand the role of vitamins, minerals and trace elements
  • Gain insight into maintaining a healthy weight
  • Learn how to make sense of food labelling




Classes were informal, welcoming and interactive, and presented in a clear and concise manner without too many big and confusing words where everything was explained. 

I would strongly recommend it to everyone. Whether you work with food or not, information like this is so valuable in every-day life.


I really enjoyed the REHIS Food and Health course. I found it educational and informative.  I learnt many new things and reinforced some things I thought I knew already.  I felt that the course level was just about perfect for those with some knowledge and those with little or none.
