The purpose of this course is to prepare Early Care and Education providers who care for infants and toddlers to implement responsive feeding practices in their program. Responsive feeding is one component of responsive caregiving. It simply means that the caregiver “reads” the infant’s or toddler’s hunger or fullness cues and responds consistently in an emotionally supportive and developmentally appropriate manner.
