Nationwide Children’s Hospital Introduces “Feeding Your Kids” Program

Parents can sign up for free text and email-based program that gives tips on feeding kids and teens


Columbus, OH - 5/3/2012

The Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, alongside partner, University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, recently launched a new program for parents, “Feeding Your Kids.”

Feeding Your Kids, a partner of the Clinton Global Initiative, is a free, 45-day text and email-based program that addresses the real-life challenges of feeding kids and teenagers. Everything is written from a parent’s perspective and can be used by parents and caregivers with children of any age, from toddlers to teens. The program helps parents and families make small changes that add up to a big result – a lifetime of healthy eating behaviors.

Some of the topics and tips parents receive address ways to include breakfast in kids’ daily diet, healthy lunch and snack options, eating right while eating out, dinner recipes and more.

The Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition at Nationwide Children’s recommends that parents sign up for both the text and email options. Parents can choose to receive texts/emails once a day for 45 days or once every other day for 90 days. Text messaging charges are subject to individual text plans.
