Parent Wellness Workshop
Our Parent Wellness Workshops are aimed at promoting healthy lifestyle changes to all caregivers who have influence in the daily life of preschool-aged children. Our parent workshops are intentionally designed to be: engaging, interactive, fun and educational for adults. Evidenced-based and field-tested, our workshop series is designed to support families and reduce barriers to change. Parents are recruited and taught by trained, bilingual (English, Spanish) facilitators.
There are 6 hours of workshop content which cover: physical activity and screen time, helping children be good eaters, family meals and eating together, better beverages, eating fruits and vegetables, and celebrating family health.
