The transition from milk to complementary feeding requires adult sensitivity to infant signals of hunger and satiety.

It is well-known that infants accept foods more willingly at specific times during infancy, called sensitive periods; these periods correspond to a time frame during which infant experiences will influence the development of later food preferences as well as willingness to eat.

Dr Cristina Costantini is a Teaching Fellow in Psychology at Oxford Brookes University. In this talk, Cristina will present her current research on infant complementary feeding, which explores maternal feeding behaviours, mother-infant interactions, and infant food acceptance.

The talk will be held in the function room in Wig & Pen pub, George Street, which is wheelchair accessible.

This event is free and open to everyone.

There is no need to book so please just turn up on the night.

Talk will start at 7pm
