Preventing Food Allergies: The Impact of What and When We Feed Babies
February 3, 2021 - February 3, 2021
Guidelines for feeding babies have changed monumentally over the past two decades, particularly regarding the introduction of potentially allergenic foods. This coincides with a steep increase in the number of children who have developed food allergies. In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- a brief history of feeding recommendations for infants and how the current guidance in the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans provides food allergy prevention benefits for infants and families
- the most important research and latest scientific evidence about how and when babies should be fed potential allergens, particularly peanut and egg, to prevent food allergies
- concrete examples of how Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) and Nutrition and Dietetic Technicians, Registered (NDTRs) can provide evidence-based, practical guidance to parents and caregivers to overcome barriers to early introduction of potential allergens
Registration is FREE, and a recording of the webinar will be sent to all registered attendees.

This live webinar is approved for one hour of continuing education credit from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND).
