Childhood obesity and ongoing unhealthy lifestyles stem in part from the messages we get about food when we are young. Early childhood professionals need to send the right messages to their students about the role food plays in our lives and the proper portions to eat. Consider the messages some adults send, better ways to communicate and what are appropriate portions for both children and adults.
Each enrollee will need to:
- Watch the professional development video.
- Take the quiz to reinforce what you've learned.
- Download the PDF of the Powerpoint to refer to in the future.
- When you've completed all of the steps, a link will be sent to you for the professional development certificate.
