As parents, we want the best for our children, and this includes their health. Building healthier babies means teaching healthy habits starting at birth. This three week series is designed for parents of babies and toddlers aged 0-3 years. Community experts will share strategies to nurture your baby's physical and mental well-being for life-long health. Both Moms and Dads are encouraged to attend.

April 23rd - Confident Movers - Instructor Nate Hendrickson, TNT Kid's Fitness

- Play/movement is a child's #1 occupation. This session will showcase how to use movement/play to enhance physical, cognitive, and social development.

April 30th - Adventurous Tasters - Instructor Krstle McNeal, RD, LD, Lakes & Prairies Head Start

- The majority of eating habits are formed before the age of 5 years - and parents are able to shape these eating habits! This session will focus on creating a positive relationship with food and children, and will include tips for introducing new foods to children.

May 7th - Social & Emotional Learners - Instructor Jody Claus, M.S., LMFT

- This session will help you understand how early experiences shape a child's mood and behavior and how you can help set the stage for healthy relationships throughout life.

Please note this is currently a one-time pilot series. Participants are asked to make every effort to attend all sessions, and participant feedback will help determine future offerings. Attendees of all three sessions will receive a complimentary gift for their participation.
