Ensuring Healthier Lives – Nutrition Panel

Operation Smile’s Nutrition Council came together from every corner of the world to have an enlightening discussion on the role breastfeeding plays in the health of infants and the connection between nutritional support and speech development.
Through open conversations from our panel of dietitians, speech therapists, pediatricians and more, you’ll learn about our global efforts to educate and empower families by providing them with the resources they need to ensure the healthy development of their child. For this group of women, their hard work is inspired by their determination to never see a child denied cleft surgery because of poor nutrition.
