Week 1 – Assignment
[WLOs: 1, 2] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4]
Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read Chapters 1 and 2 from Groark & Song (2012) and view Jorge and Lily’s stories (Links to an external site.). Proper health and nutrition is critical for the growth and development of young children, yet many American children experience issues stemming from poor nutrition. In fact, HealthyChildren.org finds that “nearly one in three children in America is overweight or obese” (2016). This assignment will focus on two nutrition issues that affect young children.
After viewing Jorge and Lily’s stories, choose one scenario for your assignment.
