Feeding Healthy Futures

Feeding Healthy Futures is a healthy eating group program for expectant or soon-to-be parents, designed to support parents and their children achieve their best health over the child’s first 1000 days.

Feeding Healthy Futures provides information and assistance for parents to help their children develop lifelong healthy eating habits.

Facilitated by Accredited Practising Dietitians, Feeding Healthy Futures provides evidence-based information to help you navigate your child’s food and nutrition needs during the three most crucial stages of their first 1000 days.

Group engagement sessions

At each stage of your child’s development you’ll take part in three separate 3-week face-to-face group sessions lasting 60 minutes per session.

Stage one – nutrition in pregnancy

Starting in your second trimester, you will join a supportive peer group to receive practical strategies and nutrition information to support you through your pregnancy and post-partum period. Your group will meet weekly for three weeks at selected libraries across the ACT for an evening session.

Stage two – introducing solids

As your child reaches 3-5months, we’ll re-join your groups to discuss all your questions about starting solids. We will cover how, when, and what foods, as well as hot topics like allergies and responsive feeding practices.

Stage three – transition to family food

As your child transitions into early toddlerhood, we will regroup one last time to talk all things food and feeding, building the foundation for ongoing positive relationships with food.
