Boards: Board on Children, Youth, and Families, Food and Nutrition Board

Activity Description

The Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council will develop a series of information resources to support guidance based on the recommendations of the report Weight Gain During Pregnancy: Reexamining the Guidelines. This effort will focus on three major audiences: health care providers, public health agencies, and community-based organizations and women's groups. Working with sponsoring organizations, the project team will identify up to five key partnership groups within each audience for collaboration and creation of a core set of materials (an “information toolbox”) that includes print, electronic, and video resources.
