Recorded Webinar: Confidently Nourishing Children: What's the Deal with Dairy?

Confidently Nourishing Children

The 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s Scientific Report includes dairy foods in its inaugural recommendations for expectant moms and children from 6 to 24 months, as well as recommendations for children two years and older. This is a critical window of time to support optimal health and set the foundation for healthy eating patterns to help people thrive across the lifespan. Nearly all parents agree that eating habits during childhood will have a lifelong impact on their child’s health; however, only one-third are confident that they are doing a good job shaping their child’s eating habits. As health professionals, it can be a challenge to help parents navigate the plethora of information on nutrition.

Join board-certified pediatrician and past-president of National Medical Association, Winston Price, MD, FAAP, FACPE, and mom and founder of Cleverful Living, Holley Grainger, MS, RD, as they discuss key questions they receive from parents about their babies, toddlers and teens. 

Learning Objectives

    1. Help parents understand the dairy’s role in nourishing children.
