Working with Families Who Feed with European Infant Formulas

Presenters: Lisa Richardson

Webinar Description: In this presentation, we'll focus on working with families who are using or are considering using a European infant formula.

Supporting Children (and Families) With Weight Concerns: It's Not Just the Pizza Rolls

Presenters: Leslie Schilling, MA, RDN, CSSD, CEDRD-S, CSCS and Katja Rowell, MD

Webinar Description: A child’s lived experiences can positively or negatively impact their ability to self-regulate. As a result, some children may experience weight dysregulation. Practitioners must be aware of and elicit pertinent medical, developmental, trauma and feeding or dieting history, and how they can impact a child’s relationship with food and their bodies into adulthood. Despite recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics to avoid discussions with children about dieting and weight in order to do no harm, it remains a focal point of conversation in many healthcare settings, communities, and in the media. This presentation will address safe, evidence-based responsive strategies and practical tips to help families and clinicians promote healthy eating patterns and prevent disordered eating behaviors in children through a weight-neutral, culturally-sensitive lens.

Learning Objectives

  • Acknowledge childhood experiences and environmental factors that may impact a child’s ability to self-regulate intake.
  • Identify current recommendations and guidelines for monitoring growth and discussing weight with children and adolescents.
  • Synthesize language and practical tips to guide parents, coaches, and healthcare professionals in helping children (re)discover internal cues to move towards a more positive relationship with food and their bodies.
