New app to help parents feed baby for life

Everybody loves a chubby baby, but a chubby baby could turn into an overweight adult.

The link between you weight in the first year of life and your weight as an adult is an important one, and a new app and website is hoping to teach parents good feeding habits for their newborns.

The ‘Growing Healthy’ app and website is designed to give parents evidence based information on breastfeeding, formula feeding and introducing solids from 0-9 months.

Elizabeth Denney-Wilson is an associate professor in the Faculty of Health. She is one of the researchers behind the app.
