> Creating Healthy Choices for Young Children
>> It is really important to make children aware of healthy
>> choices to make when it comes to food. There are many
>> delicious snacks and meals for young children that can give
>> them the nutrients necessary for their growth and
>> development. There are many advertisements that portray not
>> so healthy snacks to be wonderful for children. It is
>> important that healthier snacks are advertised as well. This
>> Assignment will give you two opportunities to encourage
>> children to make these healthy choices.
>> 1) You are going to create an advertisement using the Flyer
>> Template in the attachment that makes a healthy snack look
>> exciting. Please make sure to include a fun and healthy
>> snack, not just one that it is easy to purchase. For
>> example, ants on a log.
>> *Please feel free to be as creative as possible, but make
>> sure to cite your sources. If you use clip art, using the
>> pictures from Microsoft Word is the best choice
>> **If you click on the circles on the top of the flyer, you
>> can add clip art to make the flyer more attractive.
>> 2) You will complete a five day menu for the age group of
>> your choice. Your menu will include alternative choices for
>> children with wheat (gluten), nut allergies, or other
>> allergies, and vegetarian children. Your menu will be
>> created by filling out the form provided and submitting the
>> form by the end of Unit 6.
>> In the introductory paragraph before your menu, describe at
>> least four appropriate food safety guidelines. For example:
>> Proper food handling procedures and precautions for breast
>> milk, formula and solids; proper food preparation to include
>> common food choking hazards; precautions and alternative
>> food choices addressing common allergies including nuts,
>> wheat, and milk.
