Nutrition Talks For Parents
Familyfoodworks runs talks for parents about good nutrition for their children. These talks make introducing healthy eating habits easy and the group setting is popular as a means of sharing ideas and support among parents. We provide reliable, up-to-date information about healthy eating for the whole family.
We understand there’s a lot of nutrition information and it’s confusing so we’ve simplified the facts and put together a program that makes it easy for you to make good choices when it comes to feeding your family.
By starting off with a few simple questions, such as,
- do you know if your child is eating too little or too much?
- how do you serve food at the table?
- how many times a day does your child need to eat?
Our 1½ hour presentations are interactive, informative and fun. The emphasis is not only on learning but sharing experiences and ideas with other parents. Some of the best ideas for incorporating healthy food come from fellow parents.
The talks will identify
- what foods are important for learning
- quick meal ideas that will keep everyone happy.
- the portion sizes children need
- ways to get your child to eat vegetables
- what to do if your child doesn’t eat at all.
