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.
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.
