HEALTH, SAFETY, AND NUTRITION FOR THE YOUNG CHILD, 8th Edition, covers the contemporary health, safety, and nutrition needs of infant through school-age children in one comprehensive volume, with extensive coverage of topics critical to the early identification of children's health conditions and the promotion of children's well-being. Concepts are backed by the latest research findings and linked to the key professional standards of the field. Collaboration with families, sensitivity to individual differences, and the critical importance of health, safety, and nutrition education continue to be stressed. Written in a clear, concise, and thought-provoking manner, this time-proven book is filled with easy-to-access checklists, guidelines, and lesson plans that no early childhood student or professional should be without!
"We have used this text for many years. Students like the readability and it meets the needs of our objectives for the course. It is the best health, safety, and nutrition textbook that I have found for early childhood students."
"This is the must-have text. Others are adequate, but do not substantially cover all elements needed for this course."
From The Critics
Reviewer: Louise B. Kahn, RN, MSN, CPNP (University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center) Description: This book provides a broad, basic understanding of health, safety, and nutritional issues of children in group care and early childhood settings. It comes with a CD that can be used for teaching and learning activities. Purpose: The purpose is to provide current research and developments in the field of early childhood for new learners in early childhood education and nursing and, specifically, for those working in early childhood settings with young children and their families. As more children are cared for in out-of-home environments than ever before, the book is extremely relevant. The author has provided concise and complete information that is easily accessible to all providers of such care. Audience: The author, degreed in both nursing and education, applies an interdisciplinary approach to the care and nurturing of young children and families, which strengthens the message. She demonstrates a wide breadth of knowledge and a deep understanding of the interaction between health and education in the early years and the foundations for learning and success in children's lives. It is a very good resource for students and practitioners working in the areas of community pediatrics and early childhood education. Features: Prevention, health promotion, and risk reduction are covered, as well as specific methods of screening and assessment, forms that are useful in early childhood settings. A broad discussion of safety includes a well researched section on child abuse and maltreatment. The sections on nutrition and feeding are well presented, and the author provides a good discussion of feeding relationships and their importance for obesity prevention, a critical need in this era. Assessment: This book will be an excellent addition to my own practice library. It contains information from several fields of study, and can be used as a field text when in the childhood nursing clinical setting with students. The updated information on current issues in child health, such as obesity prevention and school vending machine recommendations, is timely.
