Parents

Parents are essential in the journey to teach our children about healthy foods and physical activity! At school or at childcare, your child has been participating in the Food Friends Fun With New Foods and the Food Friends Mighty Moves Programs where they are learning about trying new foods and developing their gross motor skills. Here at the Food Friends, we encourage you to continue to teach these skills at home. Please visit our “Taste Together” page creative ideas to help your child try new foods and our “Play Together” page for ideas to stay active as a family and teach gross motor skills at home.

For our Colorado parents, please also visit our “Community Resources ” page to learn more about assistance in your community for food, jobs, medical care, and more.
