One of a series of 18, this Child Development Associate (CDA) training module provides a guide to planning and preparing nutritious meals for children. Experiences which promote positive nutrition and mealtime habits are also included. Upon completion of this module the CDA trainee is expected to be able to plan, prepare, and serve balanced meals and snacks, teach children to select foods needed for a balanced diet, teach food, nutrition and mealtime concepts in planned and incidental learning experiences, make records of and reports to parents about children's eating habits, provide a physically and psychologically positive mealtime environment and alleviate causes of disruptive behavior in individual children. Early sections of the module define terms and suggest a procedure by which trainees can evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Subsequent chapters discuss basic nutrition, effects of nutrition on young children, menu planning, the mealtime environment, mealtime problems, supplemental foods, foods in the curriculum, and activity development. The module also provides 20 learning activities, ranging from resource unit development to constructing recipe charts, for the CDA trainee. Supplemental books, pamphlets, films, filmstrips and children's books are listed. (RH)
