This Tuesday 10th July, two of our citizen scientists groups will receive the eagerly anticipated results to their experiment, asking “What’s in breast milk for older children?”.

This experiment is a collaboration between Parenting Science Gang, the online support groups Breastfeeding Older Babies and Beyond and UK Breastfeeding and Parenting Support, and Dr Natalie Shenker and Dr Simon Cameron, both of Imperial College, London

You are invited to join us, as we find out the results
