The Fort Garry/St. Norbert Healthy Child Coalition is one of 26 Provincial Coalitions to receive funding from Healthy Child Manitoba. The members of our Coalition are people from the community who are interested in the welfare of our children.  Every program funded by the Coalition supports parents in one or more of the following areas: parenting, nutrition and physical health, literacy, and capacity building. These programs are free and geared towards parents/caregivers and children (birth to 6 years of age) to attend together.

Talk to other parents about the joys and challenges of parenting. Ask the Program Leaders for ideas about services and resources in your community to support you in being the best parent possible.

Enjoy a healthy snack, exchange recipes and ideas for feeding your family, and learn through discussions about ways to save time and money in the kitchen. (What’s for supper, anyways?)

Our Little Chefs program, run at General Byng school in the spring time, is a great way to encourage healthy eating by getting preschoolers involved in preparing and cooking food.

We also partner with our community dietician to offer¬†“Raising a Healthy Eater” workshops.

Take part in the rhyme circle, share a book with your child, participate in craft time, or simply spend some fun time with your little one. These are all activities you can enjoy at one of the funded programs. Find out how these activities help prepare your child for school.

Find out about training opportunities and programs you can take part in, learn about ways you can become involved in your community, share your knowledge and experiences with others.
