Keeping Kids Healthy.
Mays, Sharon; And Others
This pamphlet offers a collection of items relating to child health in the day care setting. Included is an overview of a collaborative project to develop a comprehensive set of national standards for health, nutrition, safety, and sanitation in child care programs. Contents of the project's resource kit, "Keeping Kids Healthy and Parents at Work," are listed. These include Healthy Young Children: A Manual for Programs, and other texts or videos available for checking out, background reading, or distribution. A report on the Keeping Kids Healthy project describes its objectives, accomplishments, and impact. Teaching materials include a description of the health benefits of washing hands, an outline of a handwashing demonstration, a handwashing chart, and a copy of a handwashing poster. Also included is teaching material describing germs and ways to stop the spread of germs, and a listing of reference books and audiovisual programs. A short concluding paper on the use of cloth versus disposable diapers advocates the use of disposable diapers in a day care setting because they maintain sanitary conditions and preserve good health.
