This year is pivotal for child nutrition. For the first time, the 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) will offer authoritative guidance for infants and toddlers from birth to 24 months of age. A growing body of scientific evidence illustrates the beneficial role of beef’s nutrients for physical and cognitive development in the early years. Now is the perfect time to elevate awareness of the science and provide practical recommendations for parents and caregivers to help children grow and meet developmental milestones.
The Eating in the Early Years E-Vent is an immersive virtual experience you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Join us as researchers and health professionals gather to review and discuss the current state of the science surrounding nutrition recommendations for birth to 24 months, unpack what and how we feed infants and toddlers, and determine ways to inspire behavior change to improve nutrition outcomes in the early years.
