Baby Friendly Manitoba:  Information for Parents

Healthy Eating for Infants and Children

It’s in the early years that children learn lifelong habits for healthy eating. By encouraging and establishing good eating habits early on, children will form healthy attitudes and behaviors towards food. These attitudes will last a lifetime.
