About the webinar:
Did you know that nutrition around conception and during pregnancy can affect a child’s lifelong health? Or that a little one’s diet in their first two years of life can do the same? This is called the ‘first thousand days’ phenomenon, which we explore in our upcoming webinar with dietitian and Early Life Nutrition Alliance CEO, Melanie McGrice. In this Q&A-style webinar, Melanie will explain what dietitians need to know when working with patients who want to fall or are already pregnant. How can nutrition impact egg quality? Does diet affect pregnancy complications? And what role does nutrition play when multiple babies are on the way? Join us to find out!
