About the webinar:

Toddler years are often a challenge when it comes to nutrition. This webinar aims to give practical advice on how to manage a toddler’s diet that lacks balance. This will include identifying those at risk of macro or micro nutrient deficiency or excess and how best to support them. Common dietary challenges in the use of vitamin and mineral supplements, oral nutrition support, obesity and autism will be covered. This is an up-to-date and practical summary of research everyone working in toddler nutrition should know.
