Nutrition Presentation February 14th


Family Life Education is collaborating with Connecticut Children's Medical Center (CCMC) and Cooking Matters to bring Hartford families a presentation on nutrition and healthy eating on Wednesday, February 14th from 10 a.m. to noon at the FLE offices. The FLE office is located at 30 Arbor St. in Hartford. 

The program, facilitated by CCMC SCOR Program Coordinator Lori DiPietro, is the unofficial kickoff of a collaboration between CCMC and Family Life Education's new Children's Wellness Center. CCMC's SCOR program is sponsored through a grant from Khol's Department stores and stands for Start Childhood Off Right. The program will also include presenters from Cooking Matters, a Hartford non-profit that works to ensure children and parents with lower incomes learn to shop, prepare, and eat healthy foods on a limited budget. All three organizations will work closely together at the Louise Earle Loomis Children's Wellness Center, opening in March. 

The presentation on February 14th is designed for low or limited income parents, but is open to the public - we do ask that you please register in advance by calling the FLE offices at 860 231-7744 and ask for Carmen. This particular program will address childhood obesity, exercise and will include a demonstration of preparing a healthy snack for children. To encourage participation, childcare is provided during the presentation in FLE's Parkville Family Center.
