Welcome to Week 12 Discussion Board!
On this discussion board, we will be discussing Life Cycle Nutrition: Pregnancy through the Toddler Years.
You get to select the question you would like to answer from the list provided but here are the rules:
All the questions need to be answered, so select a question that has not been answered. If you are answering a question that has already been answered, answer the question completely AND add some new, additional information to your response to make it interesting. This can be accomplished by: answering the question from a different perspective, or view point, adding an additional reference (in addition to the textbook), inserting a table or jpeg for clarity of response or discussing how the topic relates to you or someone you know. It is your responsibility to follow the rules in order to maximize your grade.
Questions are posted below, so it should be easy to tell which questions are available to answer.
Participation in weekly discussion is worth a significant part of your final grade and this forum presents you with an opportunity to develop a life-long skill of written communication. Please review the grading rubric attached to this assignment so you know what is expected. Please see course calendar for specific due dates.

Welcome to our week 12 discussion board!
I have reposted the above questions below in ORANGE, so each question has its own thread. Please select the question you would like to discuss as your initial post (only one) and respond under the question by replying to the question thread below. You must answer one of these questions in ORANGE for your initial response and post by Wednesday for full credit. The other questions I post throughout the week (not in orange) are optional and will not be counted as an initial response. All of the questions must be answered, so please choose a question that has not had a response yet, or has only one/two responses.
Then reply to at least 2 of your classmates’ posts (on separate days) by Sunday. Also, answer any direct questions you may have been asked by your instructor or classmates by close of the discussion.
See you on the boards!
