An Online Children's Nutrition course is being offered by Stanford University. Delicious starter recipes included, and it's free!

It doesn't go into a lot of depth about the nutritional component of it, but it has videos outlining what to have in the pantry and the difference between processed foods and unprocessed foods.

You can find it here

Recommended MOOCs?

I'm trying to learn the basics of nutrition, the particular differences between "what you eat matters" and "a calorie is a calorie", how to decipher a lot of the nutrition debates going on, and just become more knowledgeable on the different facets of diet and nutrition.

Has anyone here ever taken a course in Nutrition through one of the online classroom sites, e.g. Coursera/Edx? There's a few I'm looking into, but I'm not sure if any are better than others.

Health and Society - Edx

Nutrition and Health Part 1: Macronutrients and Overnutrition - Edx

Nutrition, Health, and Lifestyle: Issues and Insights - Coursera

Fundamentals of Human Nutrition - Coursera

Nutrition and Physical Activity for Health - Coursera

Child Nutrition and Cooking - Coursera

Do any of these seem like good resources, or are there any others I should look into?

That looks really good!

On the topic of child nutrition I took this class a while ago and found it highly beneficial.

People can take it for free if they don't want the certificate.

What a great opportunity you have to learn, WITH your family!I've always liked cooking, but having my children grew that. Our son LOVES to help out, play cook, etc.Start small - if you're eating take out every day, make it a goal to cook once a week and go from there.

There are SO many resources on the internet for toddler friendly meals (although my 2 year old also has days where all he wants to eat are bananas and goldfish cracker, choose your battles I suppose)

There's a free course from Standford -


Edit: I JUST realized you weren't specifically talking about yourself. My bad! My point still stands, if someone DOESN'T know how to cook there are so many ways to learn

You can definitely supplement your lived experience by taking some Developmental Psychology classes on Coursera. They have a course on childhood nutrition, too:

Have you tried Coursera? I enjoyed the Stanford course on nutrition,

She also has one specifically for child nutrition

I have taken both and still like to go back and review now and then.
