About the webinar:
How do current Australian infant and toddler eating habits compare to current guidelines? Join us for part two of this two-part webinar series to find out! Dr Merryn Netting and Najma Moumin will deep dive into the results of the OzFITS study, the first-of-its-kind Australian-wide survey of infant and toddler nutritional habits. Merryn and Najma will also address what this means for health professionals working with young children, and explore the principles behind defining an ‘adequate intake’. Be sure to attend part one of this webinar series or watch the recording before viewing part two.
