Nutrition in Teenage Pregnancy. A Curriculum Guide.
This package of nutrition lessons was developed for teaching pregnant teenagers and teenaged parents enrolled in School-Aged Maternity (SAM) Programs in Wisconsin about nutrition. This guide provides a set of flexible lessons and resources for the SAM teacher (and for any person involved in teaching pregnant teenagers or teenaged parents) to introduce nutrition into the curriculum. The step-by-step format of activities can eliminate much of the time usually spent planning entire units or lessons. The guide consists of 14 complete lesson plans. Lesson "0" offers the teacher an opportunity to guage which of the other lessons would be most appropriate for a particular class. The remaining lessons are divided among three sections: (1) nutrition in teenaged pregnancy; (2) nutrition during lactation and infant feeding; and (3) nutrition for non-pregnant teenagers. Also included is an appendix listing various resources. (JMK)
