Baby Led Weaning for RDs: What the Research Says (1 CEU)

Please join Jessica Coll, RD on May 1st at noon CST as she reviews the evidence behind baby led weaning (BLW).  This is a live webinar. No recording is available.

After this webinar based on the most recent peer-reviewed journal articles, dietitians should be able to:

– Discuss reasons parents are choosing this approach
– Identify cases where BLW isn’t appropriate
– Evaluate whether babies are more at risk of choking with BLW
– Explain whether parents can do purees and BLW
– Evaluate whether babies can meet their iron needs with BLW

*For registered dietitians only*
