Nutrition has vital and long-lasting effects on children's development. Good nutrition helps children learn better and promotes lifelong healthy eating habits. Connecting current scientific research with best practices, Rethinking Nutrition provides information to help early childhood caregivers and educators meet and understand children's nutritional and developmental needs. Learn how to:

Promote proper nutrition for the healthy growth of children from birth to age five
Address special dietary needs, including food allergies, obesity, family preferences, and chronic diseases
Establish healthy eating and feeding habits
Use food and mealtimes to promote children's social and intellectual development
Implement food and nutrition policies in early childhood settings

Each chapter also provides a series of examples that bring nutrition principles to life in early childhood settings, topic suggestions for staff discussions, sample letters to families, and a list of further readings. Extensive appendixes provide additional information on federal nutrition regulations, preventing food-borne illnesses, the USDA's MyPyramid for Preschoolers, and more.
