The recent Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Scientific Report includes, for the first time, dietary guidance for women who are pregnant and infants and toddlers from birth to 24 months of age, highlighting the importance of optimal nutrition during these life stages. Health professionals play a critical role in educating expectant mothers and the parents, guardians, and caregivers that help shape dietary intake during the first few years of life. This webinar will equip health professionals with clear and practical guidance for educating these groups on the latest research and key dietary recommendations from the Scientific Report.
After attending this webinar, the attendee will be able to:
• Identify important nutrients and foods during pregnancy and birth to 24 months
• Explain the importance of introducing potentially allergenic foods early and often
• Describe practical ways to close nutrient gaps during pregnancy and birth to 24 months
