Having Conversations About Healthy Growth in Young Children

Time: 7.30pm - 8.30pm

Online Webinar

The third addition in our Tackling Childhood Obesity series, this webinar will focus on the 0-2 age group. We will 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 will also explore the association between unhealthy growth in infancy and overweight and obesity in childhood. Join Professor Mark Harris and Professor Elizabeth Denny Wilson in discussing 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.
