Keeping Children Healthy: Safety, Nutrition, and Environment

Young children’s health can be measured by their physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development. This development is affected by environmental conditions and nutrition. With a focus on the caregiver’s role in optimizing children’s well-being, this course emphasizes preventing injury and illness and incorporating specific healthful practices into daily routines. Survey hazards that children face and learn how to eliminate them, examine nutrition guidelines, discuss ways to encourage good eating habits and fitness, and design a teaching project. Also, explore environmental risks, the influence of media, and current issues in the field of children’s health.
