Administrators' Perspective: Integrating Nutrition Education Into the Preschool Curriculum.
Battle, Jimmie L.; Blackwell, Jacqueline
This paper addresses the need for and importance of integrating nutrition education into the existing preschool curriculum. Following a brief definition of nutrition education according to the White House Conference on Food, Nutrition, and Health, discussion focuses on determining who is responsible for nutrition education. It is argued that, although parents certainly play a major role in the nutritional care and education of their children, educators, administrators, classroom teachers, and other school personnel must also assume much of the responsibility for making nutrition education more meaningful. The author concludes by demonstating how, through integration of the nutrition education into the existing preschool curriculum areas, children can enrich their experiences in language, social living, mathematics, science, and aesthetics.
