Feeding Infants and Children from Birth to 24 Months: Summarizing Existing Guidance

Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

This is a prerecorded webinar that took place Thursday, February 4, 2021. 

Caregivers want to know the best way to feed their children, and professionals want to give them evidence-based guidance in this area. Sometimes there can seem to be an overwhelming number of recommendations related to infant and young child feeding from a variety of professional and non-profit organizations and government agencies. But are there really big differences in the guidance being generated by these different entities? Are there opportunities to harmonize the guidance that is being provided? This session will provide an overview of the findings from a recent National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine consensus study report examining consistency of current guidance on what and how to feed infants and young children in high income countries. Speakers will discuss areas where more information on what and how to feed young children is needed and opportunities for organizations and government agencies to collaborate around the development and the dissemination and implementation of future infant and young child feeding guidance. 

Speaker: Kathryn G, Dewey, PHD, Rafael Perez-Escamilia, PHD, and Elizabeth Yakes Jimenez, PhD, RD
