Breastfeeding And Children's Brain Health
Michelle Riddle is a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and Registered Holistic Nutritionist. She collaborates with leading international scientists, educators, and the community to reverse symptoms associated with chronic neurodevelopmental conditions in children. As founder of the Global Alliance for our Children’s Future, she also focuses on creating a world where our children can grow up, be resilient, self-assured and productive adults.
She'll sit down with HolisticMom MD, Dr. Madiha Saeed, for Breastfeeding Awareness Month, to discuss how breastfeeding during infancy is associated with both short and long-term health benefits. Evidence indicates that children who are breastfed have better neurological outcomes, however there are many moving parts in this picture. Michelle will address biological and nutritional impacts, relationship and connection factors, and socio-cultural norms that can make a difference for our children's future.
In this program, you will learn:
- The biological and nutritional benefits of breastfeeding
- How relationship and connection factors are supported and facilitated through breastfeeding
- The socio-cultural norms that impact breastfeeding and future outcomes for our children
