Scientific evidence continues to demonstrate the health benefits of choline at all ages and stages of life,1 yet 90% of Americans are not meeting daily choline needs.2 When it comes to maternal and infant health, choline plays a critical role in helping to prevent neural tube defects in developing babies and promoting cognitive development in newborns. This prompted the American Medical Association to call for higher, evidence-based levels of choline in prenatal vitamins.3
This WH DPG webinar will review the emerging evidence supporting choline’s critical role in maternal and infant health, and address the role health professionals can play to help improve choline intake during this important life stage.
Join Marie Caudill, PhD, RD, professor in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University as she presents her recent research on choline’s role during pregnancy and the first 1,000 days. Elizabeth Ward, MS, RD, will then translate the scientific evidence into meaningful choline-focused recommendations for expectant women and young families. This WH DPG webinar is sponsored by VitaCholine®, Balchem Corporation.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the critical role choline plays in supporting positive health outcomes, particularly at important life stages such as during pregnancy and the first 1,000 days of life.
- Translate scientific evidence into meaningful dietary recommendations to help boost choline intake among women of child-bearing age, pregnant women and infants during the first 1,000 days of life.
- Recommend foods and supplements that can help women and infants improve choline intake to achieve research-backed health benefits.
