    Will a blended food diet be addressed?

    Hi Jill, thank you for your question! The talk doesn’t really go into blended diets but you could certainly ask a question about it to the presenter, who is a pediatric dietitian and is familiar with this topic.

    Thanks Amy for your quick answer. My daughter tried to register (she is the one that want to participate because her 16 months old baby Andres is using the G-tube and she is his caretaker), but she couldn’t. The register’s form ask for professional information and she hasn’t.
    Please, can you tell us what she need to do to register for this webinar?
