Description

Pediatric nutrition requires a different skillset than managing nutrition for adults. If you’re not familiar with nutrition for babies or bigger kids, making recommendations to parents can be tricky and even intimidating. This session will help providers understand how to evaluate growth, discuss basic nutrition concepts that they should understand when taking care of pediatric patients, and review some common scenarios and interventions seen in pediatric primary care.
