Free CEU- Children Aren’t Just Smaller Adults: Making Every Bite Count When Nourishing the Younger Generation

In 2019, 73 million Americans - about 1 in 5 - were under age 18. This important population has unique nutrition needs that differ from adults, thanks to their growing bodies and increased demands. The latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans included nutritional guidance for infants, children, and adolescents for the first time, reinforcing how vital good nutrition is during these stages of rapid growth and development and providing a compass for practitioners to best care for this younger generation. In this webinar, registered dietitian nutritionist and author, Lauren Manaker, MS, RDN, LDN, CLEC, will shed light on the most recent guidelines, uncover key nutrients for these stages, and arm healthcare providers with practical tips and messages to communicate to patients/caregivers.

Key Learning Objectives:
- Explore the 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and learn how they pertain to the younger generation.
- Identify key nutrients needed from infancy through adolescence and how to incorporate food sources of them into a daily eating pattern.
- Gain practical tips and resources to share with parents/caregivers to optimize nutrition intake during these stages of rapid growth and development.
