Healthy Families: Right From The Start

GIVE YOUR CHILD THE BEST START IN LIFE

This virtual course is for families in Southwark and Lambeth with a child aged 0-5. The course covers breastfeeding, parenting skills, wellbeing, eating patterns and more. Healthy Families: Right From The Start is much more than just a nutrition course – although it does discuss eating behaviours and healthy eating, issues with eating are not the only reason why a family might be referred.
