Obesity is a major public health concern for America's children. The problem is particularly prevalent in low-income, high-minority communities, where access to healthy food is often lacking. Children's food preferences can develop as early as infancy and intervention during these early years has the potential to offset the risk for obesity and chronic disease. During childhood there are ample opportunities to establish healthy eating practices and good physical activity habits, rather than trying to remedy unhealthy patterns later in life. In this webinar, Dr. Slusser will discuss the ways we can cultivate healthy eating habits throughout childhood and adolescence and into adulthood. She will also explore how to eat healthfully and sustainably for our health and enjoyment, our community and the world.
The webinar is conducted using Blackboard Collaborate™, accessible on Windows, Mac, and now even Apple iOS devices, Android devices, and Kindle Fire. You will need speakers or a headset to hear the audio portion of the webinar. Questions can be submitted via text during the webinar.
