Teachers' Nutrition and Healthful Feeding Practices in Child Care and Head Start Classrooms

Share
Description:
The overall goal of the proposed study is to generate new insight that will inform policies and practices related to professional development activities aimed at better equipping early childhood educators to implement evidenced-based best practices associated with healthful nutrition and feeding practices. Three specific aims will guide the study: (1) to identify the needs of child care and Head Start teachers in regards to nutrition and healthful feeding practices, and to explore how current professional development opportunities are meeting these needs; (2) to explore child care and Head Start teachers' perceptions of mealtime challenges, and how such challenges may or may not be related to the professional development trainings they receive; and (3) to identify teacher recommendations for the creation of professional development training topics/activities that better address the needs of child care and Head Start teachers within the domain of nutrition and healthful feeding practices.
