Everyone has a blast at Healthy Busy Bodies, our interactive playgroup that runs every Thursday from 10:00 am - 12:30 pm.
Planning meals, food shopping on a budget and ensuring children are getting adequate nutrition are challenges for many families. Add to the mix, food allergies, picky eaters or hectic schedules, and even professional chefs would struggle! And….. did you know that most children need to try a new food 10 times before they will accept it?
With the support of United Way of Quinte, NHCS can help! We offer this popular program which gives kids a chance to socialize and play, and eat a delicious nutritious lunch. We have frequent guest speakers and workshops on everything to do with healthy eating habits from nutrition, to dealing with picky eaters, to smart shopping, and coupons and budgeting, Participants get the chance to try new dishes, make friends, learn new recipes, and take home a grocery store gift card so they can make the recipe again at home.
