[FEB. 4, 2004]  The current recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics on breast-feeding and formula feeding, as well as other nutrition topics, will be discussed during the second session of a five-part in-service training series for dietitians, home economists and other interested health care professionals. The teleconference is scheduled for 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Feb. 19 at the Logan County Extension office, 980 N. Postville Drive in Lincoln.

Dr. Sharon M. Donovan, professor of nutrition in the University of Illinois Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, will present the session. She will discuss topics such as the timing and progression of the introduction of solid foods and the appropriate serving sizes for infants and toddlers. She will also address some of the challenges that can occur during feeding, including food allergies, picky eaters and overweight.

The American Dietetics Association has approved two continuing professional education hours of in-service credit for registered dietitians taking this session and two hours of credit for each of the following three sessions.
