The littlest, fastest-growing bodies and brains benefit from a slightly different mix of nutrients than older children and adults. Do you have an interest in infant and toddler nutrition? Join dietitians Allison Stowell and Kitty Broihier to explore the relationship between early feeding and childhood health status, including prevention of childhood obesity and how first feedings influence a child’s development as a healthy eater.
Participants will be able to:
- Explain the importance of age appropriate nutrition and the safe and proper introduction of foods for babies and toddlers
- Discuss the unique nutritional needs of babies and toddlers
- Report on the science behind current nutrition guidance for babies and toddlers and the connection between this guidance and disease prevention in childhood and adolescence
- Share science and education gained with patients, clients, colleagues, students and others to increase their knowledge and understanding of pediatric nutrition
