Nourishing the Nascent Nibbler

Please join us on Tuesday August 7th, 2012 at 4pm pacific / 7pm eastern as we host Julie Matthews, C.N.C. for a webinar entitled "First Foods for Baby and Toddler: Nourishing the Nascent Nibbler."

Essential growth and foundational health begins from the day your child is born - establish good nutritional habits early. The nutrition, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids you feed your child as a baby will serve them well for lifelong health. Good nutrition as an infant (starting with nutrition for breastfeeding mothers) and toddler creates a strong immune system, important brain growth and development, dense bones, healthy digestion, and a good “palate” (for healthy food choices). Good dietary habits early will help a child be a less picky eater and maintain a healthy weight throughout life.

In this webinar, we will discuss and learn:
•             Nutrition for breastfeeding mothers and/or homemade formula recipes (when necessary)
•             First foods introductions for baby
•             What to feed and not feed your baby
•             Nutritional needs for children of all ages
•             Foods to aid digestion, eliminate colic and thrush, and boost immune function
•             Tips for picky eaters
