*this workshop is designed for both parents and childcare providers*
Participants will explore how nutrition and healthy brain development relate. We all know the human brain begins forming early in prenatal life (just three weeks after conception), but in many ways brain development is a lifelong process. How do the foods mothers eat while pregnant and the food we feed our children in the first few years of life affect their cognitive, motor and socio-emotional abilities? Join us and learn how you can play a role in promoting optimal child development through food and experiences in your childcare program and at home.
presented by with: Gillian MacKinnon, Registered Dietitian with the Vermont Department of Health & Dr. Jody Brakeley, pediatrician
