Moreton Bay Regional Council

Nutrition Australia QLD hosts nutrition education sessions as part of Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Healthy and Active 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.

 

Sessions will run from 10am until 11:30am. Parents/Caregivers are welcome to bring their child along. Please note – there will be no childcare available. You will be responsible for your child.

Due to COVID gathering restrictions, we have allocated one child per adult to attend the workshop. If you wish to bring additional children please contact us.
