Start them right

What, how and when we feed children is important to helping them learn about food and eating and to develop healthy habits in life

This month we highlight two excellent resources for parents on the Healthy Tasmania website.

1.Start them right  is a comprehensive parenting guide to eating for under 5’s that covers subjects such as:

  • Breastfeeding and alternatives
  • Introducing solid foods
  • What, when and how much to feed
  • Family meal ideas
  • Drinks for your baby
  • Feeding guidelines for children

2.How to shape a child’s body image is available as a Facebook video and also in blog format. This resource can help parents to talk to their children about how to respect their body regardless of its shape, colour and size

3. For more family food and solid introduction info in New Zealand check out this link too.
