Toddler nutrition, while vital for healthy growth and development, has been under-researched compared to other age groups.

Healthcare professionals are under pressure from government initiatives to find practical food-based information for parents of toddlers.

It is essential that healthcare professionals play a role in enabling parents to make correct food choices for their toddlers today to prevent both short- and long-term health complications.

The Infant & Toddler Forum aims to help healthcare professionals in their daily practice by providing practical advice and support.
