Written for the Health, Safety, and Nutrition course taught in departments of Early Childhood Education, Child and Family Studies, or Child Development.


This practical text provides teachers of young children with a comprehensive understanding of the nutrition, health, and safety needs of children from birth through school age.

The streamlined second edition of Nutrition, Health, and Safety for Young Children: Promoting Wellness offers an engaging, solid presentation of wellness concepts that prepare early childhood educators to implement healthful practices and teach young children ways to contribute to their own wellness. Through anecdotes, cases, and authentic examples, the authors use a storytelling approach that helps contextualize wellness concepts for readers. This approach and other meaningful pedagogical features promote critical thinking about professional situations, and offer a glimpse into the everyday classroom environment–diverse populations of young children in family child care, child care centers, preschools, and elementary school settings.
