Does this describe your child's diet? If so, our classes can guide you in the right
direction. These classes aren’t like school and there are no tests. Instead there will
be games, activities, and food samples to build healthy habits at an impressionable age.
If your child is a COPC patient and you want to improve their nutrition, we encourage
you to attend classes and bring them along.
We care about your child’s well-being in all areas and that includes the food they eat. Families are busier than ever in today’s world and nutrition may be an afterthought, but our program is here to help. Eating a healthy variety of food doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming. There are many tips and tricks to bump up your child’s nutrition that we can help you discover. Come to one of our classes for more information.
At COPC, we understand that every child is different so we encourage you to experiment and see what works for your family. Try these tips out next time you think of a new food your child may not have eaten before. For more individualized recommendations, talk to your child's COPC physician or come to one of our nutrition classes.
