An excellent book which is relevant to the changing society we live in and the issues around healthy eating. Definitely recommend this book.
Good book for students considering their optional units for both level 2 and level 3. Particularly at level 3 when learners are working with 0-3 years old.
a detailed book which clearly explains food and health in early childhood.
Excellent book for students studying the health & Nutrition module in early education at undergraduate level
Although a good resource for basic principles regarding Food and health in Early Childhood, the link with health professionals regarding in particular multidisciplinary working is disappointing in not promoting the role of the specialist community public health nurses (SCPHN) Health Visitors and School Nurses who play a vital role in promoting health and wellbeing and nutrition in early childhood. For child branch nursing students this emphasis and link is essential regarding promoting child and family public health and therefore another text was chosen.
Albon has truly adopted a holistic approach to exploring this issue so relevant to a range of academics and professionals alike.
a valuable textbook, which highlights areas of interest for students undertaking early years related programmes
Great discussion points and case studies.
