Recorded Webinar: The Power of Pregnancy Nutrition

This webinar was presented on Thursday, July 21, 2022, from 6-7 p.m. ET.

Are you an RD who wants to improve the health of the next generation, reduce pregnancy complications, and make a true difference in the lives of your pregnancy clients?

What a woman eats in the lead up to conception and during pregnancy has the ability to impact the epigenetics of her future baby. This means that the risk of childhood obesity, food allergies, and chronic illnesses may be reduced by ensuring a woman eats a healthy pregnancy diet.

Join Melanie McGrice, Adv APD, for a webinar that will discuss, step-by-step, how RDs can have an impact not only on the lives of their pregnancy clients but also give their clients’ growing babies a head start in life.

Join the live webinar to receive a free ready-made 7-day pregnancy meal plan filled with nourishing pregnancy meal ideas and recipes that you can share with your pregnancy clients. Register today!
