Nutrition Education for Preschoolers: A Resource Guide for Use in the Child Care Food Program.
Batko, Margaret W.; And Others
Developed to assist child care providers in starting or maintaining a nutrition education program, this guide lists resources primarily directed toward adults who care for young children (2 to 5 years of age) and toward the children themselves. Over 90 entries concerning nutrition education materials have been included. Each resource has been evaluated and selected according to criteria such as availability, manner of presentation, accuracy of nutrition education content, and appropriateness for use in child care settings. Each entry provides title and publication information; details of format, source, cost, and language of text; an abstract; and an evaluation of the item's content and presentation. Entries are organized either by intended audience or by type of material. The first section, "Nutrition Education Programs," consists of references to materials for children and adults; these materials are intended to provide a complete child care nutrition education program. The second section, "Aids for Teaching Caregivers," includes references directed toward child care providers and parents. A third section, "Lesson Plans for Teaching Children," lists materials dealing with curricula. The fourth section, "Food and Nutrition Activities for Teaching Children," mentions resources for classroom use. The last section provides references for audiovisual aids for teaching children and caregivers. (RH)
