The increase in metabolic and allergic disease is a global public health concern. Growing evidence links nutritional exposures in ‘early life’ to adulthood disease – nutrition before and during pregnancy, in infancy and in early childhood has direct implications for health.

This full-day masterclass features world experts covering the latest science to impact practice and advice in early-life nutrition. It will provide an overview of recent research, as well as evidence-based recommendations to optimise future health outcomes.

The masterclass has been designed for all professionals working in the area of early life nutrition – in particular dietitians, nutritionists, health visitors, midwives, GPs, practice nurses, community pharmacists and relevant students.
