Noting that children have different appetites and adjust their food intake on a meal by meal basis, this self study guide presents ideas to help home child care providers meet the nutritional needs of the children in their care. The guide is to be used by individuals and small groups of adults working with infants and children. The guide's eight units include: (1) "Bring Out the Best! (rationale, objectives, and instructions for completing the guide); (2) "Nutrition: The Food Guide Pyramid"; (3) "Feeding Young Children"; (4) "Understanding Nutrition Labels"; (5) "The Art and Science of Meal Planning"; (6) "Every Dime Counts! Wise Food Shopping"; (7) "Kitchen Management in Minutes"; and (8) "Food Safety for Kids." The guide's appendix includes a list of nutritional resources and discussions of various topics, such as whether sugar affects behavior, vegetarian diets, preparing foods to meet the dietary guidelines, and ways to recognize food spoilage. A meal planning worksheet and label information are also included. (LBT)
