HEALTH, SAFETY, AND NUTRITION FOR THE YOUNG CHILD, 8th Edition, covers the contemporary health, safety, and nutrition needs of infant through school-age children in one comprehensive volume, with extensive coverage of topics critical to the early identification of children's health conditions and the promotion of children's well-being. Concepts are backed by the latest research findings and linked to the key professional standards of the field. Collaboration with families, sensitivity to individual differences, and the critical importance of health, safety, and nutrition education continue to be stressed. Written in a clear, concise, and thought-provoking manner, this time-proven book is filled with easy-to-access checklists, guidelines, and lesson plans that no early childhood student or professional should be without!
