Baby food on syl­labus

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWSFRONT -

A FREE on­line “speed uni course” is teach­ing ev­i­dence-based re­search about feed­ing and in­fant nu­tri­tion for a child’s first year.

About 15,000 par­ents, grand­par­ents and health work­ers from 145 coun­tries have signed up for Deakin Univer­sity’s two-week Mas­sive Open On­line Course.

Karen Campbell said the course tack­led the con­fu­sion ex­pe­ri­enced by new par­ents and car­ers about how to ac­cess qual­ity, re­li­able and un­bi­ased guid­ance on in­fant feed­ing. The cur­rent course is still open, with the next ses­sion to start in Novem­ber.
