Central Zone - Infant Nutrition Classes


Description
Free classes for parents and caregivers of children 0-12 months of age. This class aims to answer questions about infant feeding, introducing solids and textures, and establishing a healthy feeding relationship.

Led by a Registered Dietitian, the two hour workshop highlights why babies need to start on high-iron foods at six months, and why introducing different food textures is important. Parents are encouraged to create a positive feeding relationship with their child(ren). AHS dietitians answer questions and show parents how to make their own baby food. Due to COVID 19 and the need for social distancing we have temporarily suspended in person classes are now offering a Zoom option for this class.
