MOOCs of the morning

University of Newcastle expands its menu of healthy-eating MOOCs

Clare Collins and Tracy Burrows’ “Food for kids: discovering healthy eating,” starts in March, via edX. “There is so much advertising for unhealthy food that it can be very hard to work out what to believe. This course will also teach you how to check health information, how to create your own healthy eating plans and contribute to a healthy planet,” the blurb announces. There is also a companion parents’ guide.

Collins and Burrows are authors of the multi-run “The science of weight loss: dispelling diet myths,” (also edX).
