Course Overview

As of the 13th December 2014 the Food Information for Consumers Regulation law changes introduced a range of new implications for childcare settings and providers across the United Kingdom. These changes mean that all childcare settings who provide food and snacks have to be able to identify all ingredients within all meals and snacks served to children in their care. This course explains general allergies, food allergies and food intolerances. It covers the 14 allergens controlled by UK legislation, in addition to food additives and the risks they pose.
