Read an Excerpt

The purpose of Food, Nutrition, and the Young Child is to provide an easy-to-read book about food and nutrition as it applies to the care of the child from birth through 8 years of age. It provides ways to integrate food and nutrition into the early childhood setting. FEATURES AND NEW TO THE FIFTH EDITION OF FOOD, NUTRITION, AND THE YOUNG CHILD

The book begins with basic nutrition principles in Chapter 1. Chapter 2 applies the principles of food and nutrition, and the food and nutrient standards and guidelines, to everyday life for the teacher.

The book specifically addresses the child who is cared for in home day care, preschool, or full-day-care centers with emphasis on protecting the child's health by providing the tools to assure the teacher and parents that the child is growing and developing normally. The text addresses the role of the child-care facility in helping mothers achieve their goal of exclusive and/or long-term breastfeeding as well as contributing to establishing breastfeeding as a cultural norm.

The text incorporates national standards and policies from renowned organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Dietetic Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care.

Since the last edition there has been increasing evidence that our nation's children stand to be the heaviest generation. This text addresses promotion of healthful eating behaviors and physical activity patterns and identifies policies that contribute to wellness and prevent the secular trend toward obesity. We have incorporated the newest physical activityguidelines for infants and toddlers as well as young children.

Benefits for professors and students include an easy-to-read text that covers the newest information for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and young children on: what foods to provide; when to provide the foods; how to encourage a nutritious food intake; how to arrange the eating situation to facilitate learning activities; what food and nutrition problems are seen in each age group; and strategies for involving parents.

Chapter 1 includes updated basic information on energy and nutrients. It introduces folic acid and neural tube defects and offers a cautionary note on use of herbal remedies. Helpful tools in this chapter include body mass index (BMI) calculations, dietary analysis programs, and physical activities to help teachers understand energy balance.

Chapter 2 includes Web sites from which to access tools to assess food and nutrient intakes. It introduces the Activity Pyramid for children and Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) for assessing nutrient intake. In addition, it provides information about the benefits and cautions of physical activity, and dietary implications of childhood disorders.

Chapter 3 introduces the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new growth charts. It also updates breastfeeding information, including:

  • Strategies for maintaining breast milk supply
  • The role of the care provider in promoting breastfeeding
  • Tool for assessing a mother's intention to breastfeed exclusively
  • Care and handling of breast milk
  • Identification of policies that promote and protect breastfeeding

Chapter 3 also provides the top ten bottle feeding practices to avoid and advice on how to read a baby like a book. It is in this chapter that an infant feeding policy is discussed. Expanded sections are included on the promotion of healthful feeding behaviors, on early childhood caries and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Guidelines Child-Care Settings, and on reflux and reflux disease. This chapter also incorporates the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care's nutrition standards.

Chapters 4, 5, and 6 provide updated information about eating patterns recommended for children using the new Food Guide Pyramid for Young Children. These chapters incorporate the new Dietary Reference Intakes, Adequate Intakes, and Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution into diets of toddlers, preschoolers, and young children.

A new standard allowing a wider acceptable fat range for each age group and a new recommendation for fiber intake are included, as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics' new recommendations on television viewing and the Centers for Disease Control's new growth charts and BMI for children over age 2. These chapters also include obesity prevention strategies for the young child, incorporation of National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care's nutrition standards, and a listing of model policies that promote nutrition and physical fitness in the child-care center.

New physical activity guidelines are given for 1 hour or more per day.

Chapter 7 has been expanded to include more than how to prepare the menu and now includes new standards and guidelines for food served to young children. It also provides an overview of community programs that address child health and nutrition issues and an expanded food safety section, including references to online assistance.

Chapter 8 explores a variety of programmatic approaches used in early childhood programs.

Chapter 9, the final chapter, presents new strategies for involving parents and teachers as partners in nutrition education. METHOD OF RESEARCH

The text is up-to-date, reflecting numerous new research publications from professional journals, industry, and governmental agencies. Of particular interest is the inclusion of the new Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) and more emphasis on physical activity, along with sound nutrition practices. The importance of breastfeeding is further emphasized to ensure that centers caring for infants take every available measure to assist breastfeeding mothers. The authors have tested the concepts presented in the book in day-care and preschool centers. They have visited centers and consulted with teachers who have read the material presented.
