This practical, comprehensive text helps students understand the interrelationships among nutrition, health, and safety, and gives them strategies to share their knowledge with children and their families. Covering the full range of childhood from birth into school age, it includes concrete, common in-text examples, case scenarios, and questions that promote thinking about professional situations students will face in their own classrooms and teaching situations, while providing a glimpse into the everyday contemporary classroom environment. The new edition features a stronger focus on wellness that prepares students to teach the diverse populations of young children in family child care, child care centers, preschools, and elementary settings by providing everything needed to ensure students understand wellness concepts, know how to apply wellness concepts, and know how to teach wellness concepts to children. More accessible, relevant, and useful to students than ever, Nutrition, Health and Safety for Young Children gives early childhood teachers what they need to help all children attain wellness and be ready for success in school. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded videos and assessments.
