Nutrition Courses

Nutrition for hapū māmā

Our first evidence based course is designed by a community dietitian to support expectant mothers preparing for a healthy pregnancy and birth. Mothers will learn all they need to know about nutrition as the course content is aligned to the latest guidelines from the Ministry of Health as of November 2021.

Beautiful baby sleeping

Nurturing pēpi

Following on from our nutrition for hapū māmā course is our Nurturing Pepi. This course looks at the benefits of breastfeeding (and where to get support),  baby’s first foods, and what are the healthy amounts of sugar, salts and fats for you and baby.

 

Raising healthy tamariki

Our final course focuses on toddlers to give parents practical skills to address fussy eating, prepare healthy lunch boxes and develop your child’s healthy eating habits.

Practical skills

Our courses develop parenting skills for you, new mums and parents in the Auckland and Waitemata region. Improve your confidence in having a healthy pregnancy, raising a healthy baby or toddler.

Peer to peer learning

The information we teach is evidence based yet we encourage parents to share their life experiences too. More importantly, we see parents making friends and supporting each other in making healthy choices.

What will it cost?

One of the best bits of our programme is that it is free! We do need some information for reporting and evaluation to keep us funded. Talk to us if you need support with childminding or transport too.

Graduation

Besides enjoying yummy healthy food, learning useful skills and making new friends. Everyone who completes the 6 courses of one of our programmes, graduates with a certificate and small gift!
