Our Standards:

The NANP is the only professional business league, wholly dedicated to furthering the cause, education, and standards of the holistic nutrition industry. We have developed two rigorous sets of Educational Standards for both Nutrition Consultants and Natural Chefs. Every school that appears on our Partner Schools and Holistic Nutrition Programs pages have applied for and participated in our thorough review process. Only those schools/programs that pass our review make the cut.

Prospective students who are looking for a credible program in holistic nutrition and natural cooking can be confident in choosing any of the schools listed on our site because we've done the work to ensure these programs offer a comprehensive and well-rounded curriculum. Graduates of these programs qualify for Professional Membership in the NANP (and the many benefits we offer). Graduates of approved programs are also able to apply to sit for our Board Exam in Holistic Nutrition (Not applicable to Natural Chefs).

Schools that offer programs in either holistic nutrition or natural cooking are welcome to apply by visiting our Educational Institutions page and selecting the appropriate program review application.
