What is nutrition9 l.jpg
What is Nutrition?

  • The role of food in the maintenance of good health

  • Food at work in the body

  • Proper nutrition can prevent overweight and obesity, and medical problems associated with overweight and obesity

  • Good nutrition helps children grow to their full potential

  • Nutrition is a BALANCE of carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and water

  • UNBALANCED nutrition can lead to obesity

    and other adverse health effects


Slide10 l.jpg

Carbohydrates

  • Supply energy in the form of glucose

    • Body’s most important and readily available energy source

    • Brain’s preferred energy source

  • Children need carbohydrates for energy and help with growth and development

  • Sources of carbohydrates

    • Grains (preferably whole grains)

    • Fruits and Vegetables

    • Milk


Carbohydrates l.jpg
Carbohydrates

  • Simple sugars are also carbohydrates

    • Cakes, cookies, sugary cereals, doughnuts, candy

    • These items are high in calories and low in valuable nutrients

    • Too much of these are linked to obesity

  • Limit foods that contain simple sugars

  • Excess simple sugar consumption may result in storing it in your body as fat (UNBALANCED)



Carbohydrates13 l.jpg
Carbohydrates requirement of sugar.”

  • Fiber

    • Non-digestible carbohydrate

    • Filling and therefore discourages overeating

    • Best sources are whole grain breads & cereals

  • Whole Grains

    • Contain fiber, B vitamins, iron, magnesium

    • It is recommended that whole grain products are served a minimum 3 times per week

    • (White flour is made from the endosperm)


Protein l.jpg
Protein requirement of sugar.”

  • Building new tissues, forming new cells, cell repair and oxygen transport

  • Body can also use as a source of energy

  • Sources of protein:

    • Meat

    • Dairy products

    • Legumes

    • Peanut butter


Slide15 l.jpg
Fat requirement of sugar.”

  • Protects vital organs in the body

  • Develop brain structure and nerve tissue

    • Very important for infants and toddlers up to age 2

  • Production of hormones and maintaining skin

  • Aids in absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A,D,E,K)

  • Children need fat for normal body development

  • Excess fat in a diet can lead to weight gain (UNBALANCED)


Vitamins l.jpg
Vitamins requirement of sugar.”

  • Help your body use carbohydrates, proteins and fats

  • Promote growth, cell reproduction and health

  • Support immune system

  • Two types

    • Fat-Soluble

    • Water-Soluble


Vitamins17 l.jpg
Vitamins requirement of sugar.”

Fat-Soluble

Water-Soluble

  • A, D, E, and K

  • Stored in the body (fat cells)

  • Children’s diets are often low in vitamin A

    • Serve foods high in vitamin A 2-3 times/week

    • Handout

  • C and the B vitamins

  • Need to be consumed daily because they are not stored in the body

    • Handout


Minerals l.jpg
Minerals requirement of sugar.”

  • Calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron

  • Needed for growth of teeth and bones, muscle contraction, nerve reaction, blood clotting

  • Iron

    • Needed to make hemoglobin, the oxygen carrying component of red blood cells (RBC). Without iron, the body cannot make RBC and cannot get oxygen to tissues and organs

      • This leads to learning and behavior problems and iron deficiency anemia


Minerals19 l.jpg
Minerals requirement of sugar.”

  • Infants and children especially need iron because they are in a growing stage

    • It is a CACFP requirement that infants

      consume iron-fortified cereal until age 1,

      in addition to breast milk and/or

      iron-fortified infant formula

  • Good sources of iron:

    • Meat, enriched grains, leafy green vegetables

    • TIP: Serve iron-rich foods with foods containing vitamin C (tomatoes, broccoli, oranges and strawberries) to improve the body’s absorption of iron


Water l.jpg
Water requirement of sugar.”

  • Carries nutrients and oxygen throughout body

  • Removes waste products

  • Regulates body temperature

  • Maintains blood volume

  • Children get busy playing and forget

    to drink water so offer water to

    children throughout the day

It requirement of sugar.” Is The Responsibility of Child Care Facility to Provide Nutritionally Adequate Healthful Food

What do you need to do?

Fundamental to parents’ (or child care provider’s) job is trusting children to decide how much and whether to eat. If parents do their jobs with feeding, children will do their jobs with eating:

  • Children will eat

  • They will eat the amount they need

  • They will learn to eat the food their parents (or caregivers) eat

  • They will grow predictably

  • They will learn to behave well at the table

    • Use leftovers as part of the meal the next day
