Choline is a nutrient powerhouse; yet, 90% of Americans are not meeting daily minimum needs (based on Adequate Intake data), and many nutrition professionals are unaware of its health benefits. This under consumed, essential nutrient is important for all ages and stages of life. It is especially important during pregnancy for both mom and developing baby, as it supports healthy brain growth and reduces risks for neural tube defects.

Presented by internationally recognized folate and choline expert, Marie Caudill, PhD, RD, and award-winning author, nutrition consultant and spokesperson, Liz Ward, MS, RD, on Wednesday, September 12 from 2-3 pm ET, this webinar will provide the latest research on choline’s role during pregnancy, fetal development and infancy. Additionally, the webinar will offer advice on how health professionals can translate the science into action, helping to elevate the choline conversation and increase choline intake among the general population.

Learning Objectives
After completing this continuing education course, nutrition professionals should be able to:
  1. Recognize the critical role choline plays in supporting positive health outcomes, particularly at important life stages, such as during fetal development and beyond.
