Description:

Child obesity is at epidemic levels. One-third of the children in America are carrying too much weight. Early childhood programs can lead the way in educating young children and their parents on the importance of diet and exercise. This Turn-Key Training Program will give early childhood educators the knowledge base and practical strategies they need to make a difference.

This comprehensive, self-contained professional development DVD is comprised of 14 interactive one-hour lessons divided into four modules. The program captures the insights of more than 60 experts in pediatrics, nutrition, movement, child development, and adult education, as well as scenes of appropriate practice gathered from more than 30 innovative early childhood classrooms across the country. It also includes discussion questions that will measure what the viewer has learned along the way, as well as off-line resources and suggested extended activities.

"Preventing Obesity and Promoting Wellness in Early Childhood Settings" offers a new way of presenting video-based training. It is the first release in the Turn-Key Training Series, with each program focusing on a specific early childhood topic.
