Food allergies affect 1 in 13 children in the United States, with young children being affected the most. Food allergies, food sensitivities and other feeding issues are an increasing concern for early education and care programs. Participants will be introduced to the health and safety needs of children with special dietary needs and ways to support these children and collaborate with families and health professionals. Participants will begin to develop their own individual health care plan for children with special diets, allergies, and specialized feeding issues in their program. This class will be taught in a webinar format, in two 2-hour live webinars with required homework assignments.
