For parents and caregivers


INFANT is designed to help parents and families with healthy eating and active play from the start of their baby’s life.

INFANT consists of four face-to face group sessions for parents/caregivers led by a nurse or other practitioner, with content reinforced via a mobile app (called My Baby Now).
