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 and beef’s nutrients in supporting physical and cognitive development throughout the early years. Consequently, this is a 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 a week-long immersive virtual experience you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Throughout the week, participants will connect to review and discuss the current state of the science surrounding birth-24 months nutrition recommendations, unpack what and how to feed infants and toddlers, and determine ways to inspire behavior change to improve nutrition outcomes in the early years.
