- We RECOGNIZE that maternal obesity is a major risk factor for childhood obesity thus our interventions need to go back into the prenatal period.
- We RECOMMEND addressing of factors associated with picky eating: early feeding difficulties, late introduction of lumpy foods at weaning, pressure to eat & early choosiness; parental feeding styles and practices as a way of avoiding picky eating.
- We COMMIT to improvement of the knowledge and practice of HCPs on management of nutritional conditions.
