Lancashire Maternal and Child 0-5 Nutrition Guidelines
The Maternal and Child 0-5 Nutrition Guidelines have been developed through the CYP Trust Health and Wellbeing Priority Group to reflect the child nutrition issues experienced in our diverse population of Lancashire. Nutrition is a major determinant of growth and development in both infancy and a child's early years and affects health in later life.
This document aims to provide clear evidence based guidelines that can be used by all health professionals and early years' staff to ensure that parents-to-be, parents and carers receive consistent and accurate nutritional advice and information. Feedback and comments on the guidelines are welcomed.
The closing date for comments about the guidelines is 23 January 2013 (at 12 noon).
The draft guidelines and cover letter are available to view or download below.
