Many health professionals and public health campaigns cite that “breast milk is the perfect food” for infants.

This webinar will take a closer look at the research on the nutritional variation in breast milk, nutrients that are affected by maternal intake, and strategies to boost the nutritional value to ensure breastfed infants receive adequate intake.

Naturally Nourishing Fertility Series Part 2

Nutrition and lifestyle factors play a critical role for both women and men in the 4 months prior to conceiving. During this timeframe, as eggs and sperm develop and mature, they are especially vulnerable to inadequate nutrition, environmental exposures and lifestyle factors.

Basics of Real Food Prenatal Nutrition

Research is constantly evolving, especially in the field of prenatal nutrition, and yet, there’s a lag time between new evidence getting incorporated into public policy and nutrition guidelines.
