If you're not familiar with Ellyn Satter's two books, I'd strong recommend that you get copies. They are the basis for my talks with parents and caregivers, as well as one of my favorite gifts for parents-to-be. They are: Child of Mine: Feeding with Love and Good Sense, and How to Get Your Kid to Eat, But Not Too Much. Both are gems and form the basis for a rationale approach to feeding young children.

Subject: Teaching nutrition to future day care workers
I will be teaching nutrition and health for preschool children at Medicine Hat
College in Alberta, Canada, starting next January. I am gathering material
for the course now.In such a course , I have the opportunity to present, not
only nutritin and health through the first 6 years of life, but I also
the importance of good nutrition and health practices for caregivers. Their
optimum health is a requirement to perform their jobs well as they work with
children and their parents.
I would be interested in hearing from others who are teaching nutrition and
health to day care and preshchool workers. What tools have worked well for you?
