Nutrition Education--Choose Well, Be Well: A Resource Manual for Preschool, Kindergarten, and Elementary Teachers.
Lundin, Janet, Ed.
To be used in conjunction with the "Nutrition Education--Choose Well, Be Well" curriculum series, this resource manual is designed to help teachers in preschools, kindergartens, and grades 1 through 6 acquire the proficiency necessary for providing effective nutrition education. The document is based on the goals set forth in the Health Instruction Framework for California Public Schools and topics identified in the publication entitled "Minimum Proficiency Levels for Nutrition Education in California Schools." Chapter 1 of the document presents introductory information about the manual's objectives and organization, while chapters 2 through 6 cover the five topics identified in the California nutrition education minimum competency guidelines: food choices, factors influencing food choices, food-related careers, consumer competencies, and food handling. To ensure systematic achievement of the goals of California's nutrition education program, minimum proficiency levels for students were developed for each of these topics and specific questions are asked so that the teacher can check retention of key information. Answers are provided after each set of questions. (MP)
