Nutrition Australia Qld hosts nutrition education sessions as part of Logan City Council’s Active and Healthy program. Our qualified and experienced dietitians will provide helpful information on feeding your infant and answer any questions you may have regarding nutrition and first foods.

 

First Foods for Infants – Nutrition information session for parents and carers

This casual information session will provide information for families and carers on feeding their infants including first foods. Workshops will discuss the importance of infants and children experiencing food texture appropriate to their age and stage of development which will assist a child’s speech development, oral health and motor skill development. Sessions will also include practical tips on how to make food for infants.
