Food Before One Is Not Just for Fun

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET

While babies should be encouraged to play and have fun with their food, providing them with a variety of foods also plays a major role in proper nutrition and development. In this webinar, Sherry Coleman Collins and Malina Malkani explore infant nutrition basics and the importance of diet diversity, including the introduction of potential food allergens, to reduce the risk of food allergy.
