OVERVIEW AND INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Nutrition for Infants and Young Children, 5th Edition, a pre-approved, accredited Continuing Professional Education self-study program (CPE program).
Providing nutritional care for infants and young children presents a unique challenge. These tiny tots need the proper quality and quantity of nutrients to fuel dynamic growth and development processes and build both strong bodies and good eating habits to last a lifetime. At the same time, provision of nutrients is limited by children's developing physiology and physical abilities. Challenges range from assuring that a newborn that can only suck gets an adequate amount of breast milk or formula to formulating a meal plan for an underweight preschooler who is frustrated by his lack of dexterity in handling a spoon. Successfully steering infants and young children through this demanding time brings the unequaled reward of seeing little smiles beam bright from the glow of good nutrition.
This CPE program will provide you with detailed information that will enable you to care for infants and young children, including:
  • Evaluating their growth and development,
  • Calculating their nutrient requirements,
  • Planning, recommending and implementing feeding programs for them,
  • Assessing their nutritional status.

This CPE program is designed to help you earn 12 continuing professional education units (CPEUs). It is a Level 2 CPE program, meaning that the reader has general knowledge of the literature and professional practice in the area(s) covered. The focus of the program is to enhance knowledge and application.
To get the most out of this program, it is suggested that you follow these four steps:

Step 1:

Read the information presented. Stop and think about how this might apply to situations you have experienced.

Step 2

When you come to an example or case study, work it out by applying it to your own situation.

Step 3:

Assess what you have learned by completing the self-assessment instrument at the end of this CPE program.

Step 4:

Compare your answers with the answer key at the end of this CPE program. Calculate your total score. If you scored at least 80% correct (40 answers) you are ready to transfer your answers to the CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION (CPE) REPORTING FORM. If you scored less than 80% correct, re-read this learning program until you score at least 80% correct. After you have successfully completed the program, complete the CPE REPORTING FORM and:
