Was the last thing you learned about feeding a baby from your Lifecycle Nutrition class? Well, it's time to bone up on your baby-feeding know-how! There’s an exciting and credible body of emerging evidence and practice that supports a baby-led approach to infant feeding...and dietitians NEED to know about this!
Baby-led weaning is an alternative to spoon-feeding whereby babies feed themselves real, wholesome foods from the get-go. Baby-led weaning helps babies become children that like and accept all types of food. It can help prevent picky eating and may even lead to lower rates of childhood overweight and obesity.
In this presentation, mom of 5 and self-proclaimed baby-led feeding fanatic, Katie Ferraro, is going to run you through everything you need to know about this safe and natural alternative to spoon-feeding. You'll learn about the baby-led approach to feeding philosophy and we’ll cover ideal starter foods and tips for pushing a baby's palate. By the end of this webinar, you will be more confident about your ability to incorporate baby-led weaning either in your own family or your nutrition practice.
