Being a new parent is wonderful but also really challenging.
The New Parent Care series focuses on giving you support to have quality food when you are exhausted and busy caring for a baby. Remember, it’s not just about the baby. If you are hungry you are even more susceptible to fatigue. Learn techniques to adapt your cooking style to work around your baby’s needs, creating meals the whole family can enjoy while providing the nutrition you need to function well. (Babies 6 months and younger are welcome to attend these sessions as well.)
