Food and Nutrition for Healthy Kids Workshop

Would you like to know more about what foods to introduce to your baby first? Or perhaps how to juggle milk feeds and solid food in the early days? Maybe you're interested to learn some tips on what foods contain the important macro and micronutrients for your toddler’s health and wellbeing, or how to encourage good eating habits for your fussy preschooler? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this workshop is for you!

In this once-off 1.5 hour discussion (with Question & Answer), Louise Shalders discusses practical approaches to childhood nutrition from breastfeeding to formula feeding, from introduction to solids to nutritional requirements for toddlers and preschoolers. 

Date/Time:  Thursday 22nd November 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Location: Sunshine Maternal and Child Health Centre (31A Alexandra Ave Sunshine)

Cost:  $30 per person

Your partners are also welcome to attend the event. Please book for 2 people if your partner is also attending. Children are also welcome - please consider your own ability to absorb information while attending to your child's needs.

Class is limited to 15 participants.
