Since experts agree that sound nutrition during this critical period supports a child’s ability to grow and meet developmental milestones, both physically and cognitively, caregivers must take necessary steps to lay a strong foundation during infancy and toddlerhood. Registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) can provide practical, evidence-based solutions to help caregivers navigate food choices and feeding techniques during this exciting period.
RDBA WEBINAR: Stay Strong with Family Meal Strategies
FMI’s Staying-Strong-with-Family-Meals Barometer research reveals that the majority of Americans plan to continue having family meals to stay connected to their loved ones, building on the habits bolstered during the height of the pandemic. In addition, FMI’s U.S. Grocery Shopper Trends 2021 study shows that the desire to balance pleasure, health, values, and convenience still forms the backbone of how consumers think about and practice notions of eating and cooking well. Helping your shoppers understand how to make nutritious, delicious, and convenient meals will likely make family meals more achievable and enjoyable.
