6 How can you make healthy habits fun? Option 2: How can you make healthy habits fun?Ask participants to turn to someone sitting nearby and pair up in twos (or threes), introduce themselves, and share any ideas they have for making healthy habits fun for kids, such as using funny songs, colored soap, or puppets to encourage hand washing. In a small group, debrief by asking participants to introduce their partner(s) and share the idea. In a larger class just ask for a few examples. Record ideas on a whiteboard (or paper) and leave posted to refer to later in the module. Encourage participants to add ideas during and after the module.everydayhealthplan.blogspot.com
7 While children are in your care, what do you do to keep them healthy While children are in your care, what do you do to keep them healthy? Which of the food handling and preparation regulations do you have the most trouble implementing? Is the way you are required to diaper a child in licensed care different from the way parents diapers their children? Why?Outcome AThe student will demonstrate healthy practices: hand washing, diapering, food-handling and meal/snack procedures. Discussion QuestionWhile children are in your care, what do you do to keep them healthy?Which of the food handling and preparation regulations do you have the most trouble implementing?Is the way you are required to diaper a child in licensed care different from the way parents diapers their children? Why? PresentationHand washingWe all agree that keeping children and staff healthy is a number one goal of any early learning program. Frequent hand washing is the single best protection we have against the spread of germs and therefore staying healthy. Did you notice the long list of times staff members are required to wash their hands with soap and warm water?When arriving at workAfter toileting and diaperingAfter attending to an ill childBefore and after preparing, serving, or eating foodBefore and after giving medicationAfter being outdoors engaged in playAs needed.Can you think of examples of “As needed?” How about after wiping a child’s drippy nose? When do children need to wash their hands? What is proper hand washing technique? (See Activity 1, Handout 1).
8 Diaper ChangingDiaper changing is a task requiring special attention because germs love warm, damp, dark places, and there is no place warmer, damper and darker than a soiled diaper. Close your eyes and imagine yourself going through these steps when changing a diaper:Wash hands.Gather necessary material.Put disposable gloves on hands.Place child gently on table and remove diaper.Dispose of diaper in a hands-free garbage can with a lid.Clean the child’s diaper area from front to back, using a clean, damp wipe for each wipe.Apply topical cream / ointment / lotion when written consent is on file.Remove gloves.Wash hands or use wet wipe (if no fecal matter on hands).Put on clean diaper and dress the child.Wash child’s hands with soap and running water or with wet wipe and dry hands with paper towel.Place child in safe place.Clean and disinfect diapering area and any equipment touched.You can understand why each diaper changing area is required to have posted instructions on this procedure.turningithome.com
9 Food handling and Snack / Meal Preparation Best Practice:All staff preparing, handling, and serving food should maintain a current Food Handler’s Card. This includes all teachers and caregivers who serve children food and snacks.Food handling and snack / meal preparationChildren are especially vulnerable to foodborne illnesses due to their smaller body size and underdeveloped immune systems. It is critical that food safety be maintained in all areas of food storage and preparation. In programs where food is prepared, at least one staff member must have a Washington State Department of Health Food Handler’s Permit to:Monitor and oversee food handling and service, andProvide orientation and on-going training for all staff involved in food handling.Best Practice: All staff preparing, handling, and serving food should maintain a current Food Handler’s Card. This includes all teachers and caregivers who serve children food and snacks.You have an important role to play in preventing the spread of food-borne illnesses by simply following a few steps to be sure food is handled appropriately The Washington State law outlines approved food sources. Following is a list of foods you may not serve:Leftover food previously served outside your center.Home canned, frozen or prepared food unless it is for the person’s own children.Donated food from restaurants or caterers that was previously served.Game meat that has not been inspected by the USDA.Donated meat, fish, poultry or milk that is not from a source inspected for sale.How about families bringing food into the program? Is this approved? What does your Guidebook or Guide advise on this subject?Cooking and storing foods at incorrect temperatures are major contributing factors to foodborne illnesses. Thorough cooking, consistent hot holding, proper cooling, cold storage, and complete reheating of foods are all critical steps in preventing the growth of pathogenic bacteria in foods. Important numbers to remember for safe holding temperatures are:41°F or cooler and 135°F or hotterDanger zone: bacteria will grow very rapidly in foods between 41°F and 135°FFoods that are moist and high in protein (such as meats, rice, beans, dairy foods and eggs) are most susceptible to bacterial growth. The warmer and moister the food, the faster bacteria can grow. That is why there is such a concern about foods sitting at room temperature or warmer. Raw produce can also be a source of food borne illness. Fresh produce should be cleaned appropriately and cut leafy greens, tomatoes and melons should be refrigerated.
10 Invisible germs! Option 2: Invisible germs! Materials and Resources NeededBook “Mean Nasty Dirty Downright Disgusting but… Invisible Germs” by Judith Anne RiceRead the children’s book listed above. Model a circle time discussion. Ask the class members to take on the role of the children and instructor, and model questions.How do we kill those bad germs?When do we wash our hands? Why? How?How do you feel when you are sick? How do you make sure your friends do not get sick too?Why do we use tissue to wipe our noses?Option 3: Diapering babiesThree baby dollsDiaper changing suppliesUsing the dolls and supplies, demonstrate the steps in properly and improperly changing diapers. Ask the group to tell you what’s wrong in Demos #1 and #2.Demo #1: Don’t use wipes, change wet pants, or wash hands while saying how “yucky” the baby is.Demo #2: Diaper normally but treat baby as an object--never looking at or talking to her/him, and instead telling the group about a favorite novel or movie.Demo #3: Model the conversation the care provider might have with a baby during a change of diapers while following proper changing procedures (such as discussing what you are doing, and asking the baby to help as much as possible).Finish by discussing the concept of partnering with a baby or toddler during routine tasks, and identify barriers to healthy practice and ideas that can help. Option 4: Healthy practice: food preparation and servingHandout 2, “Healthy Practices for Preparing and Serving Food to Children in Your Care”Use Handout 2 as a tool for reflecting on food handling practices. Not all participants may see themselves as responsible for keeping food safe, but best practice recommends that everyone is knowledgeable.
11 Most children’s settings do not provide opportunities for children to participate in the recommended 60 minutes of structured and 60 minutes of unstructured physically active play. Why is this? Very few of us get enough sleep. How can you help children in your care get enough rest?
12 Safe and Healthy Environments Young children depend upon the adults in their lives to make healthful choices for themand to teach them to make such choices for themselvesPresentationHigh quality programs promote safe and healthy environments where children can thrive and grow. Young children depend upon the adults in their lives to make healthful choices for them and to teach them to make such choices for themselvesInfant NutritionInfants should be fed when they are hungry and should always be held when being fed a bottle. Feeding time should be pleasant with the caregiver making eye contact with the infant in their arms. Breastfeeding is the best food for an infant and child care providers have the unique opportunity to support and encourage mothers to continue to breastfeed their infants. Some infants may be receiving infant formula. Infants under 12 months of age should receive breast milk or infant formula and not cow’s milk. Solid foods should be introduced between 5-7 months of age when the infant can sit up by themselves, hold up their head and engage in feeding by opening their mouth when they want food and closing mouth and turning away when they are full. Juice should not be offered to infants. Water can be offered in a small cup for infants over 6 months of age. Do not feed infants honey or foods made with honey because of the risk of a rare but serious condition called botulism. At 8 to 9 months begin to introduce table foods such as small pieces of cooked vegetables, meat, chicken or turkey; soft fruit such as bananas; cooked chopped noodles or rice; mashed beans, tofu or egg yolk; and bite sized pieces of toast, plain crackers or tortillas.
13 Child Nutrition: Just how much food do children need? Just how much food do children need? According to the regulations food must be offered about every 2 to 3 1/2 hours. Snacks or breakfast must be served upon arriving at morning care, and snacks need to be served to children after school. Children in care for five hours need to be served breakfast or lunch and a snack at the minimum. Basically, if children are hungry, feed them. Children do have small stomachs so they need small amounts of food often. A general rule of thumb is one tablespoon per year of age as a serving size. A two year old’s snack might be two tablespoons of applesauce, ½ slice of whole wheat toast and a quarter cup of water.Children need a variety of foods from each of the food groups. Children should be offered a wide variety of fresh, frozen or canned fruits (canned in 100% juice or water) and vegetables; nonfat or 1% milk for children over 2 years of age and whole milk for those 1-2 years of age; whole grains (100% whole wheat breads, brown rice); and lower fat protein foods (lean beef or chicken, beans). Limit or do not serve high fat processed meats (hot dogs, corn dogs, sausages) and pre-fried or fried and then baked meats and potatoes (chicken nuggets, fish sticks, French fries, tater tots). Also limit sweets (candy, cake, cupcake, cookies); sweet grains/breads (pop tarts, donuts, muffins, sugary cereals) and sweetened beverages. Children should have access to water throughout the day as needed. The regulations provide the following guidelines:Breakfast must contain:Fruit or vegetable or100% juiceA dairy productA grain productLunch or dinner must contain:Source of protein – meat, fish, legumes, tofuFruit and Vegetable – or two of one of theseSnack must offer a beverage and at least two of the following:Source of protein – egg, legumes, meat, tofuFruit or VegetableWA State Meal Pattern for Licensed Child Care Programs in graphic format:Preschool Snack Handbook:Healthy Recipe Ideas for Child Care Programs:journalistsresource.org
14 Snack and Mealtimes are Social times Snack and mealtimes are social times-- make sure you sit down and eat with children. Serve family style, so that each child can serve himself to satisfy his hunger. This also gives the children opportunities to practice motor and social skills, to engage in conversation, and to have plenty of time to enjoy each other around the table.Make sure you sit down and eat with them.
15 Mix it up — serve a variety of nutritious choices. Opt for healthier alternativesChildhood obesity is a growing concern around the country. One in six children is overweight or obese by age six.

18 Sleep / Rest How much sleep do children need? How much sleep do children need? How do you know when they are getting enough rest? We know that tired children cannot concentrate, are irritable, and just do not function well. Research is also linking sleep loss with obesity. For young children, the crucial factor in reducing the risk of obesity was getting more than 10 hours of sleep at night, daytime naps did not help. As a child care provider, you must provide a rest period for all young children (five or younger) if they are in your care for more than six hours OR if they show a need for rest. Babies and toddlers younger than 29 months need to follow individual sleep schedules; toddlers need about 2 hours of naptime during the day. Even if a child is not able to fall to sleep while in your care, they must be provided with alternative quiet activities.Go to this site for an informative brochure to share with parents as you develop a partnership to insure children get enough sleep and rest:How do you know when they are getting enough rest?
19 Sudden Death Syndrome (SIDS) About one in five sudden death syndrome (SIDS) deathsoccur while an infant is in the care of someoneother than a parent,often within the first few days of careoutside the home.Back to sleepAbout one in five sudden death syndrome (SIDS) deaths occur while an infant is in the care of someone other than a parent, often within the first few days of care outside the home. When babies who are used to sleeping on their backs are placed to sleep on their tummies by their child care provider, they are 18 times more likely to die from SIDS. This is called “unaccustomed tummy sleeping.” You can reduce a baby’s risk of dying from SIDS by placing babies in your care one their back during naps. For more information:
20 Sleeping equipment for children over 1 year of age Where and how do child care providers get all of their children down for cozy naps? Floors are cold and hard – children need comfortable, warm and clean sleeping surfaces. Each child must have his own separate bedding and it needs to be stored without touching other bedding.
21 Talk about “sometime” vs. “anytime” foods. Instead of expecting young children to understand the do’s and don’ts of nutrition, it can help to talk about “sometime” and “anytime” foods.So “sometime” foods are snacks and meals that are OK for kids to have only occasionally:cookiescakescandyice creamchipsprocessed meats (like hot dogs, bologna, and others)And “anytime” foods are much healthier options kids can enjoy plenty of whenever:fruitsvegetableswhole grainslow-fat dairy productshealthy proteins (like beans, chicken, fish)Help the kids learn all about "sometime" and "anytime" foods with the Healthy Habits for Life Resource Kit.

23 Healthy Choices: Let children participate in preparing food, if possible. When kids have a hand in helping to make their own foods, they’re more likely to try and eat new, nutritious things.

25 What childhood illnesses and injuries are you most likely to see What childhood illnesses and injuries are you most likely to see? Can you identify symptoms and recommended care? How do your practices reduce exposure to childhood illnesses?Outcome CThe student will identify signs of and care for basic childhood illnesses and injuries. Discussion QuestionsWhat childhood illnesses and injuries are you most likely to see? Can you identify symptoms and recommended care?How do your practices reduce exposure to childhood illnesses?PresentationToo ill?Your first responsibility in keeping children healthy while in your care is to check them for signs of illness when they arrive, as well as throughout the day. (See Handout 4, “Daily Health Check,” for symptoms for both children and staff).Children with common colds do not need to stay home. Usually a child has already exposed others before presenting symptoms. Refer to your local health department to get a list of contagious and non-contagious illnesses. Excluding or isolating children with non-contagious, mild illnesses can be a hardship on the family and child.The center must have a clear policy on excluding a child from care. Some infections such as chickenpox, hepatitis, and meningitis require the child to stay home for a lengthy recovery period. The policy should be included in the Parent Handbook, and parents should be encouraged to have a back-up plan for their child’s care when their child is too sick to be in your program. If children are uncomfortable, disoriented, or irritable, they are better off at home getting the rest and individual attention they need. Talk to your health consultant or your local health department if you have questions about a particular illness (refer to for specific information). See Handout 5 “Following Health Policy.”Handout 4-Daily Health Check
26 When a Child becomes Ill or is Injured While in Your Care Children who become ill while in your care must be isolated. Have them lie down in a quiet space away from the other children, but within view of the staff. Staff must supervise ill children at all times. Contact the parents to come pick up their child. Your responsibilities include the following:Keep a confidential, individualized, written record in the child’s file that includes the date of an illness or injury, treatment provided and names of staff providing the treatment. (See your Guidebook / Guide for sample reporting forms)If you suspect the child has a communicable disease, remember to sanitize all equipment that the ill child used.If an injury or illness results in a visit to the child’s doctor and includes casting, stitches, or hospitalization, you are required to notify your child care licensor.Notify parents in writing when their children have been exposed to infectious diseases or parasites. The notification may be either a letter to families or posting for all in a visible location.todaysparent.comWhat must you do?
27 Giving Medication to Children in Your Care If a child has a conditionwhere the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) would apply,you must make reasonable accommodationsand that may mean giving a child medication.What are your responsibilities when giving medication to children in your care?If a child has a condition where the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) would apply, you must make reasonable accommodations and that may mean giving a child medication. The family must provide written instructions to caregivers on the proper administration of the medications or treatment required for the child. Care providers are free to choose whether or not to give medications outside of those required by the ADA. Your decision must be clearly documented in your health care policy and handbook. If a medication is prescribed two times per day or daily, oftentimes the family members will be able to administer it at home. There are exceptions, such as asthma medication, so be clear on when specifically medication needs to be administered.
28 Key Points to Remember Regarding Administering Medication: Medications cannot be given “as needed.”There must be a start and stop date for each medicationReturn any unused portion to the familyOnly documented staff who have been trained and oriented to your medication policies can give medications to children.Key points to remember regarding administering medication:Only documented staff who have been trained and oriented to your medication policies can give medications to children.There must be a start and stop date for each medication. You can only give the medication for the duration of the illness. Medications cannot be given “as needed.” (See WAC regarding use of EpiPens and asthma inhalers).Return any unused portion to the family.Read all labels carefully!
29 Administering Medication Parents must give written consentbefore you give any child any medication.Non-prescription medicationsalso require family consentParents must give written consent before you give any child any medication.Non-prescription medications also require family consent, such as antihistamines, non-aspirin fever reducers / pain relievers, decongestants, ointments for dry skin or diaper area, and sunscreen.You may not mix medications in formula or food unless you have written directions to do so from a health care provider.Prescription medication must be in the original prescription bottle or packaging.Prescription medicationmust be in the original prescription bottle or packaging.
30 Health Policy Examples You should not accept a child for care before the parent signs the medical emergency authorization form.The medical emergency authorization form should be with the child at all times they are in your care. This includes field trips.Health policy examplesLicensed programs must have a written health policy signed by a physician, physician assistant, registered nurse, or public health nurse. The policy must be reviewed and approved whenever any changes are made in your health practices or procedures, but at least every three years (usually at re-licensing time). Each program is unique, so new staff must be trained in the details of your health policy. All policies must be available for review by staff, parents, or others (licensors, health care consultants, etc.). Many centers have a three-ring binder at a central location that contains the Health Policy, Disaster Plan, Pesticide Policy, and Animals on the Premises Policy. See your Center Guidebook Appendix A (page 233, “Health Policy”) or Family Home Child Care Licensing Guide Section 5 (“Health”) and Section 6 (“Health Plan”).Your Health Policy will inform you of what to do in the case of a medical emergency. Among the forms families must sign when they enroll their child is a Medical Emergency Authorization form (also referred to as a Medical Consent form). With this form, families authorize and give personal consent for medical personnel to begin emergency medical treatment before parents arrive. Medical personnel cannot legally provide services for a minor without the consent of his/her guardian.For your protection and the safety of the child you should not accept a child for care before the parent signs the medical authorization form.The medical emergency authorization form should be with the child at all times they are in your care. This includes field trips.
31 Emergency Preparedness What will you do?Emergency preparednessHealth Policies also include basic plans for Emergencies / Disasters / Crisis Preparation. Though each plan will be specific to the program and facility, disaster plans must include:What you will do if families are not able to get to their children for two or three daysWho is designated to be responsible for each part of the planProcedures for accounting for all children and staff during and after the emergencyPlans for evacuation and meeting after the emergencyAccommodations for children with special needsPlans for contacting parents, transporting and providing for childrenWritten documentation of quarterly disaster drills for children and staffFor an example of a complete emergency plan see:Including children and families in preparing for emergencies increases the likelihood that children will be kept safe and out of harm’s way. Some examples:Teaching preschoolers how to “Stop, Drop, and Roll”Engaging families in collecting emergency supplies to provide for three days of care in your programPractice evacuation drills at different times of the day using alternate exitsYou take on huge responsibilities when caring for young children. Knowledge is powerful and skill development is vital. Stay current with Pediatric First Aid / CPR training and practice so you will know what to do.
32 What would you do…?Option 2: What would you do…?Handout 5, “Following health policy: What would you do…?”Copies of the Child Care Center Licensing Guidebook and/or Family Home Child Care Licensing GuideUse Handout 5 as a review of how your program’s health policy will determine how you deal with different situations involving illness, injury or illness prevention. Have students use the Licensing Guidebook or Family Home Guide as resources to help fill in the table. Discuss answers.For instructor:Lizzy’s case of Whooping cough needs to be reported to the local health department (WAC ). Go to for the complete list of communicable diseases professionals are mandated to report. See Appendix in the Center Guidebook (page 241) for an example of Health Policy addressing this situation.For Jamal’s injury, follow first aid steps, fill out the Child Care Injury/ Incident Report or Incident Log, closely monitor his symptoms, and then communicate with his parents when they come to pick him up.Explain to the visiting parent Gloria that “In order to protect all children in our care and our staff, and to meet state health requirements, we only accept children fully immunized for their age. The Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) is kept on file to prove compliance. Children may attend child care without an immunization if the parents sign the back of the CIS form stating they have personal, religious, or philosophical reasons for not obtaining the immunizations, OR the child’s health care provider signs that the child is medically exempted from immunizations. However, children not immunized will not be accepted into care during outbreaks of diseases or illnesses which can be prevented by immunizations.” (See Appendix A of the Center Guidebook or pages 5.17 of the FHCC Guide).Handout 5, “Following health policy: What would you do…?”
