Happy Healthy Babies: Infant Toddler Health and Nutrition Part 1 - SE Wrangell
This class will be offered in two sessions. Participants interested in receiving a "Healthy, Happy, Babies" Quality Initiative will also need to register for Part 2 that will be held on February 17th .
Infants and toddlers not only have different nutritional needs but are also on individualized feeding schedules which can be challenging to accommodate in a group care setting. This session will involve information for supporting children who are breast fed through creating an environment to encourage moms to continue to breast feed, the appropriate methods for storing and serving breast milk as well as strategies for introducing solid foods and transitioning an older child from a bottle to a cup. Participants will receive a copy of “Caring for Our Children: National Health and Safety Performance Standards Guidelines for Early Care and Education Programs (third edition).”
*Program administrators may apply for thread’s “Healthy, Happy Babies” Quality Initiative and may be eligible for financial incentives upon attendance of this training by a representative of the facility and completion of consultation related to this project.
No training dates are currently scheduled.
