This report is the culmination of 8 months of research including new analysis of the longitudinal Millennium Cohort Study; in-depth research workshops with parents in four locations across England; a representative survey of nearly 2000 UK parents; and case studies of new and innovative services and learning tools. 

We are delighted to be joined by Graham Allen MP, Chair of the Government's Independent Review of Early Intervention. The report's author, Demos Senior Researcher Louise Bazalgette, will give a presentation on the report's findings.

The research provides new evidence linking children’s experiences of early childhood nutrition with their subsequent social and academic outcomes, and identifies a variety of challenges that parents currently face in understanding and meeting their young children’s nutritional needs. Drawing on a broad range of evidence, the report makes recommendations for how health and early education policy could take a more preventative approach to supporting good early childhood nutrition, and identifies opportunities for a variety of actors including public service providers, retailers and food brands, to work together to increase parents’ understanding of their babies’ and toddlers’ nutritional needs.

The event will be held on Wednesday 12 December from 11:00am - 12:00pm at a central London venue. To request a place, please email or call 02073676331 with any access inquiries.

This project is supported by the British Specialist Nutrition Association.
