Laura Tostevin 

Laura is an MSc Student currently on a placement with the Early Life Nutrition Network, whilst completing a Masters in Health Psychology at University College London. Laura’s thesis primarily focuses on the effect of diet, in particular meat free diets, and their impact on health and behaviour in infants, children and adolescents.
