Summary

This book is the leading learning tool and resource guide on promoting safety and good health and nutrition in young children. The author does an excellent job of demonstrating the critical relationship among health, nutrition, and safety in an easy-to-read, thought-provoking format. Research-based information is used to make practical suggestions for creating high-quality environments that maximize children?s well-being and development. Case studies, review activities, and suggestions for additional reading give readers the tools they need to fully comprehend and use the wealth of information contained within this book. Specific information on diseases and common childhood afflictions, as well as information on such special interest topics as children and medication and cultural diversity in meal planning, gives readers the knowledge they need to encourage healthy practices in children and their families. The ?Focus on Families? feature encourages collaboration among parents and teachers in promoting children?s wellness. And, new BMI and growth charts serve in tracking children?s height, weight, and risk of obesity. The author also has updated Web addresses for numerous resource groups and organizations, and she has added a list of children?s book titles that reinforce healthy, safe lifestyles.
