Child feeding experts to share research with health professionals

Loughborough University’s child feeding experts are hosting a workshop to share their research with health professionals next month.

The training workshop, on 22nd June, will see the experts sharing their Special Tips and Tools for Child Feeding.

It is suitable for anyone who works with families and supports them with feeding children including health visitors, dieticians, nutritionists, and nurses. 

The workshop is designed to share practical knowledge gained by the team during their 10-plus years of child feeding research.

During the interactive half-day session, health professionals will be given practical tips for effectively managing common feeding problems to share with the families they work with. The team will also share new ways of encouraging healthy eating behaviours.

The session will be led by Loughborough University academics Dr Emma Haycraft and Dr Gemma Witcomb, who are based within the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences (SSEHS). 

This latest event follows the development of the Child Feeding Guide app and accompanying website which offers advice to parents and caregivers to promote healthy, happy mealtimes.
