When children eat, they develop and practice many skills. They need safe, nurturing environments for their growth and development.
This series will help viewers plan and carry out safe mealtimes that nurture young children. Viewers will learn how to improve the physical, social, and emotional settings they provide for children while they eat.
Experts in child development and nutrition discuss important feeding issues.
The series was developed as a satellite broadcast course for students and professionals in child development and nutrition, child care providers, Head Start staff, dietitians, food-service workers, or anyone who trains staff or parents on issues related to feeding children.
Although this is a comprehensive series on feeding young children in groups, each of the four sessions is designed to stand alone.
The book How to Get Your Kid to Eat, But Not Too Much is used to support the concepts presented in this series.
