Feeding Your Child: Healthy Body, Healthy Mind

“Feeding is one of a parent’s most important jobs. It is how we help our children grow healthy and strong. But mealtimes are about much more than food. Meal and snack times give you a chance to help your baby or toddler”:
• Learn healthy eating habits
• Feel important and loved
• Feel understood and respected
• Trust that others will care for her
• Feel good about her body
