It is common for parents to be worried about their child’s growth, as growth in early childhood can have a long term impact. The question however is, when to really be worried and what the difference is between faltering growth and malnutrition. Once this has been established, most parents also want to know about catch-up growth and what they can practically do in regards to food and feeds at home. Dr. Rosan Meyer, paediatric dietitian, has 24 year experience in paediatric nutrition and will provide during the webinar some practical tips on how to manage faltering growth and also when to access further healthcare input. This webinar is not a replacement for an individual dietetic consultation and will be 50 min long (including 5 min of questions) and cost 20 Euros.
