Recorded Webinar: A Review of Key Changes to the New USDA Pediatric Feeding Guidelines

This webinar was presented on Thursday, December 2, 2021, from 2–3 pm ET.

In 2020, the USDA released its updated Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs). For the first time, this edition of the DGAs provides recommendations by life stage, beginning from birth. This update presents many opportunities, as well as challenges, for RDs.

Join a panel of experts to learn more about the new infant feeding recommendations seen in the 2020 DGAs, as well as updates — based on new research and guidelines — around the introduction and maintenance of food allergens during infancy.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, nutrition professionals will be better able to:

  1. Analyze the key updates to the DGAs’ pediatric feeding guidelines.
  2. Apply the DGAs’ pediatric feeding guidelines in your practice.
  3. Advise clients and parents about early food introduction and feeding.

SpoonfulONE is the most complete way to introduce and keep food allergens in a baby's diet. The New USDA Guidelines recommend that as soon as babies start solids at 4–6 months of age, they should routinely eat common allergens such as peanuts, egg, cow’s milk products, tree nuts, wheat, shellfish, fish, and soy. Developed by Stanford University pediatric allergist Dr. Kari Nadeau, SpoonfulONE products — Mix-Ins, Puffs, and Oat Crackers — contain 16 food allergens covering over 90% of food allergies, making it easier for parents to follow the new USDA Guidelines and routinely feed common allergens. SpoonfulONE is available at select Target stores across the nation,,, and

SpoonfulOne has been approved by the CDR to offer 1.0 CPEU for this webinar.
