Tackling childhood obesity - part 3

Having conversations about healthy growth in young children

Webinar summary

20 March 2019

The third addition in our Tackling Childhood Obesity series, this webinar focuses on the 0-2 age group. We discuss how to assess healthy growth in this age group and identify what to do if a child has an upward or downwards growth trajectory. We explore the association between unhealthy growth in infancy and overweight and obesity in childhood.

Professor Mark Harris and Professor Elizabeth Denny Wilson discuss the current guidelines and recommendations for the introduction of solids, movement and screen time in infancy and how to speak to parents about best practice formula feeding.
