Summary "Managing Child Nutrition Programs: Leadership for Excellence, Second Edition, gives readers the skills and knowledge they need to develop and lead today's child nutrition programs. Each chapter and accompanying case study are prepared by recognized child nutrition professionals and academic leaders, with proven applications in the development, implementation, management, and evaluation of child nutrition programs. The Second Edition takes a systems approach to program management by focusing on four program areas: administration, nutrition, operations, and communications and marketing. This approach prepares readers to achieve innovation and excellence in their child nutrition programs through effective leadership in each of the program areas with the desired outcome of helping children develop healthy food habits and giving children access to healthful food when under the care of the school or institutional setting."--BOOK JACKET
