Food For Thought: The Impact of Poor Nutrition in Early Development

We all know the importance of prenatal and early nutrition. We also understand that it is likely our internationally adopted children have missed out on a fair amount of this key factor of healthy development.

This webinar will share strategies and tips on:

  • Identifying signs of malnutrition in your child
  • Having your child tested for nutritional deficiencies
  • How to help your child catch up and thrive
