About the webinar:

When are solids really being introduced? What are the current rates of breastfeeding? And when and how are allergens making their way into a baby’s diet? In part one of this two-part webinar series with Dr Merryn Netting, we dive into the findings from the first Australian-wide survey of infant and toddler feeding practices and dietary intake. Merryn will also touch on the methodology of this interesting study and explain why infants and toddlers have been excluded from dietary surveys in the past – and what this means for future research.
