OVERVIEW AND INTRODUCTIONWelcome 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:
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.
