Kolkata: Kolkata-based J.D. Birla Institute, which is a private unaided College affiliated with Jadavpur University (JU), has adopted an innovative approach to provide hands-on training through observational learning to its post-graduate students undertaking a one-year diploma course in Dietetics & Applied Nutrition under the university.


With fast evolving changes in lifestyles, the newly introduced curriculum on Dietetics has immense scope as an emerging career option, said the institute.

The Institute has initiated online diet counselling sessions by qualified teacher-diet counsellor for all keen patrons.

"Anyone wishing to know more about their health and food habits can seek an appointment with the counsellor. Each session is treated as a case study and while detailed diet plans and tweaks in lifestyle are prescribed to clients, at the same time students are trained in the field of counselling," it said.

Students participate in the live counselling sessions, which enable them to observe and learn new methods of effective and efficient diet counselling in real-time.

"Listening to the interaction between the counsellor with the client, students gain insights into the subject or aliment discussed. In some special sessions, experienced and renowned diet counsellors are also invited to share their views. After the sessions are over, students have an open interactive session with the counsellor and get opportunity to satisfy their queries," the institute said.
