The Roundtable on Obesity Solutions hosted a 75-minute webinar that explored the role of infant and early childhood nutrition (birth to <2 years of age) related to healthy growth and the prevention of overweight and obesity later in childhood. Presentations featured the current prevalence and trends of infants and young children with high weight-for-length, the state of the science on nutrition-related modifiable risk factors, and obesity prevention interventions that address healthy growth, with a special emphasis on reducing disparities in populations with above-average obesity risk.
