Promoting the Basics of Nutrition
The families we serve face extreme challenges and limited resources, but a lack of education should never be a barrier to good health.
In collaboration with our program partners, we encourage and support supplemental education on the basics of nutrition and its importance.

Moms everywhere ask our program partners common questions about health, like ''What food should I eat when pregnant?'' and ''Why is breastfeeding important?'' Our program partners counsel moms on how to make healthy choices for themselves and their growing children.
We provide our program partners with materials that incorporate expert-approved recommendations for breastfeeding practices, such as breastfeeding exclusively for the first six months of their child’s life.
Our materials and tools provide basic nutrition education and teach healthy practices such as the importance of consuming a variety of foods that are rich in vitamins. Posters, brochures, and other tools are an engaging way for moms to learn about the value of good nutrition.
Many of our program partners take nutrition education a step further by creating community gardens or encouraging information sharing between community members.
