PARENTS…

      • Are you concerned about what your child eats or doesn’t eat?
      • Do you want fresh ideas for making quick and easy meals?
      • Would you like help dealing with a child who is a choosy eater?

If you answered yes, please plan to attend Raising Healthy Eaters. Raising Healthy Eaters classes are hands-on activities and discussions intended for parents of 2-5-year-olds. Children (age 2-5) will participate in fun, nutrition activities at the same time! Children under age two may stay with parents during classes. For more information, take a look at the Raising Healthy Eaters flyer. To enroll, complete the form on the Raising Healthy Eaters flyer and mail to the UW-Extension office or call 262-741-4962. Send your registration soon as space is limited to 12 families! Remember, this program is for both children and their caregivers. Caregivers/parents must attend in order for a child to participate. Sorry, no exceptions can be made.
