Updates to the My Baby Now app
- Expanded eligibility – MBN is intended for parents alongside the INFANT group sessions, but it can also be promoted to all parents with babies less than 12 months of age – new promotional video to show parents from Sheree, a parent from the INFANT program.
- New ‘solids’ topic on vegetarian and vegan diets – Read the new ‘tips to ensure a well-based vegetarian or vegan diet’ and sample meal plans, or watch the new video for parents on “planning a plant-based diet” on the MBN app. You can also refer parents to an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) for professional advice on vegetarian, vegan and other special dietary needs.
- Coming soon – young children’s dental health: In partnership with Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, INFANT will be undertaking a trial to examine the impact of INFANT and MBN on dental health outcomes of children to 4 years of age. A new dental health topic will be available on the MBN app from July 2022.
