Infant Nutrition Classes

Free classes for parents and caregivers of children 0-12 months of age. This class aims to answer questions about infant feeding, introducing solids and textures, and establishing a healthy feeding relationship.

Led by a Registered Dietitian, the two hour workshop highlights why babies need to start on high-iron foods at six months, and why introducing different food textures is important. Parents are encouraged to bring babies to the class, which focuses on creating a positive feeding relationship. 

AHS dietitians answer questions and show parents how to make their own baby food using a variety of kitchen tools they may already have at home. Parents learn how to prepare vegetables, fruit, meat and meat alternatives, and infant cereal using a number of different tools, including hand mixers, food mills and food processors. 

Due to COVID 19 and the need for social distancing we have temporarily suspended in person classes are now offering a Zoom option for this class.
