Summary

This practical, easy-to-read volume provides future early childhood teachers with a basic understanding of food and nutrition as it applies to the care of children from birth through age eight. In addition, attention is paid to food and nutrition problems seen in young children and strategies for involving parents as partners with teachers and the food-service staff in fostering good eating habits. Coverage encompasses basic nutrition principles, examines what to feed children and when, and explores ways to use the requisite daily eating ritual as a teaching/learning experience. Incorporates the new Dietary Reference Intakes, Adequate Intakes, and Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution--related to the diets of toddlers, preschoolers, and young children. Includes the latest American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations for television viewing and for daily activity. Expanded coverage of "hot" topics: promotion of healthful feeding behaviors; reflux and reflux disease; and the new standard allowing a wider acceptable fat range for each age group. For future early childhood teachers or childcare providers.
