Healthy Baby, Healthy Me is a free, downloadable food safety curriculum, with four lesson plans, slides that can be projected or used as flip charts, a teacher's guide, participant handouts, class activities, and evaluation and advertising materials. This collaborative effort between Extension researchers from The Ohio State University and Colorado State University was supported with funds by a USDA-National Integrated Food Safety Initiative.
Healthy Baby, Healthy Me is a food safety curriculum for pregnant women. The OSU Extension also provides links within their lesson plans to regularly updated, credible Web sites.
The Teachers Guide includes an outline and explanation of each lesson, directing the educator on what to say for each slide and when to include optional activities. Each lesson includes ideas and instructions for hands-on demonstrations and activities, such as food preparation.
Healthy Baby, Healthy Me provides various teaching options including:
- Slide projection: Online slides are available for those who will have access to electronic media and the web during teaching sessions.
- DVD: PowerPoint slides can be downloaded to a DVD if the web will be unavailable.
