A Seminar on Child Nutrition and Health

Mommy got this interesting announcement from a colleague yesterday. She got the invitation to this talk because she is in the field of Health and Nutrition (she is one of the lecturers in the Food Science and Nutrition programme). According to her (and the invitation card), this talk is free-of-charge and anybody can attend it. And the topics sound very interesting to Mommy. Here are the details:

Theme: Updates on Child Nutrition and Health

Date: 10th November 2009

Venue: Main Lecture Hall, Dewan Kuliah Utama, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University Putra Malaysia.

Time: 8.30 am - 5.30 pm

Deadline to RSVP: 30th October 2009

Who to RSVP to: Chin Yit Siew (chinys@medic.upm.edu.my)
Yap Su Ling (suling.yap@mjn.com)

Organizers: UPM and Mead Johnson Nutrition

Topics that will be covered:
  • Child Nutrition and Immunity

  • Socioeconomic Disparities in Childhood Malnutrition

  • Parental Feeding Practices and Nutritional Status - What Do We Know?

  • Micronutrients and Cognitive Development in Young Children

  • Assessing Physical Activity of Children: What's New?

  • A Practical Approach in Managing Childhoon Obesity

By the way, Mommy only RSVPed on 2nd November 2009, which is already past the RSVP deadline, but luckily they still accepted because Mommy received a confirmation email from Ms. Yap Su Ling. So if you are interested to attend, you can still try to RSVP.

I wish to go but the location and timing does not suit me. Sometimes, we could learn from these talks/forum.

Aunty Smallkucing, my mommy tried not to bring work home to do, so she stayed on in office until quite late, then only come to fetch me back from babysitter's house. Mommy told me it was a very very busy week for her so much so she coulnd't find time to blog about me.Huhuhu....

By the way, my mommy asked me to tell Aunty Smallkucing that she's touched that Aunty misses her blog :-) My mommy says that she will catch up with Aunty's blog soon.
