This teachers' manual provides nutrition information and guidance to facilitate nutrition learning experiences for children and youth. The manual is organized into six parts as follows: Parts one through four provide teachers of primary and intermediate grades, and junior and senior high school with an overview of nutrition education, the goals that teachers should strive to achieve, and basic nutrition concepts and understandings that the learners should develop. These are presented separately for each of the four grade levels. Part five, "Essential Nutrition Information," provides teachers with the basic nutrition facts the teacher needs to teach effectively and to deal adequately with the questions that the learners are likely to ask. Part six, the Appendices, provide: (1) a listing of sources of books and other literature, and learning/teaching aids that the teacher will find useful for detailed discussions about the ideas presented in the manual and that can be used to motivate and enhance learning, (2) summaries of some common misconceptions about food, (3) a summary of "dietary goals" for the U.S. (Author/SS)
