Show-Me Healthy Habits. A Nutrition Education Curriculum for Early Childhood.
Missouri State Dept. of Health, Jefferson City.
This manual is designed to teach nutrition concepts to young children. The information is centered around three principles: (1) nutrients are inside foods; (2) nutrients perform specific functions in the body; and (3) behavior modification is effective in strengthening individual and family eating patterns. At the beginning of each unit, an outline of the principles and objectives is provided followed by the basic nutrition information needed for teaching the curriculum. A listing and explanation of each activity experience suggested for use with the unit includes instructional guides and patterns. "Nutri-letters" for the parents are provided to link the child's nutrition experiences at school with the family. (JD)
