Feeding a baby during the first 1,000 days of life can be an exciting adventure for parents, caregivers, and babies alike. Clinicians can play an important role to provide families with credible, nuanced education on feeding development at key stages during a child's feeding journey because of the continuity of care they provide during pregnancy, infancy and early childhood.
That’s why Partnership for a Healthier America, in collaboration with the Dr. Yum Project and a multidisciplinary team of child experts, is releasing new anticipatory guidance on feeding development and first foods.
Join Partnership for a Healthier America and the Dr. Yum Project on November 10 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET for a discussion about "Raising Adventurous Eaters with First Foods". Receive new patient education handouts with stage-by-stage anticipatory guidance during pregnancy and from 0-24 months of age. Learn how clinicians can easily integrate these handouts within the delivery of existing health care services to help families build a strong foundation for nutrition and healthy eating during the first 1,000 days of life.
