Nutrition, What Is It Good For? Translating Guidelines to Everyday Practice for Perinatal Years
We will explore how the current nutrition guidelines coincide with the mothers awareness of prenatal nutrition based on their economic status, family circumstances, access to healthy foods and medical conditions that may impact their diet during that time. Participants will also be able to support their clients by enhancing their knowledge on optimal nutrition during lactation and postpartum recovery. The presentation also aims to shed light over the need for rest and shifting baselines of what is expected with a newborn in the life of a family. We will also learn about how families under our care can transition their babies to solid meals and emphasize how access to healthy foods and regular physical activity can create a healthy body image from the start.
