On Thursday evening I took part in another Health Hangout, you may remember the one I took part in on Vitamin D? Well this one was on Early Life Programming. Scratching your head wondering that means… I was too! It’s all about how what you eat/do when you are pregnant and in early infancy affects things later in life. So what and how you wean your child can affect the risk of diseases later in lift. As a mum and someone who is pregnant it is all pretty scary stuff!
We also covered breastfeeding and weaning so please have a watch to get some top tips and hear from the experts.
If you are a health professional then why not watch and reflect on it afterwards as part of your CPD?
So you may remember I recently took part in a fantastic Health Hangout on the Topic of Vitamin D, if you missed it you can still go and catch up. For those of you not in the know a Health Hangout is a free online, interactive way to learn from the experts. Instead of travelling and paying to go to a lecture you get to sit back on your sofa, cuddle up with your laptop and a cuppa, then watch it either live or after the event. You can even take part by asking questions before hand. Pretty good huh.
The next Health Hangout will be: 11th April 9pm and the topic is Early Life Programming. We shall be looking at what you should eat when pregnant and how what you eat in pregnancy and what you feed your infant early on in life can impact later health. It’s a fascinating topic and I can’t wait to learn all about it from the other experts involved.
