Infant Feeding and Parental Health

Description

The 2017 AMA Position Statement outlines best practice on infant feeding and parental health. This introductory module is a great way to learn how to put the latest evidence into practice in this important area of public health.

Infant nutrition and early infant growth patterns lay the foundation for eating patterns and weight gain later in life. Infants need a healthy start to life to reduce the risk of chronic conditions later in life. Doctors and healthcare professionals are uniquely positioned to support parents to achieve this.

Please note
The AMA position statement seeks to highlight the complexities associated with infant feeding, and may support your interactions with expectant parents, but it does not constitute meaningful clinical guidance.
