NUTRITION SKILLS FOR LIFE is a programme of quality assured nutrition skills training and initiatives developed and co-ordinated by dietitians working in the NHS in Wales.

- Those intending to deliver Level 1 accredited courses;
- Those intending to deliver Foodwise for Life community weight management programmes;
