Connect 4Kids Save the Date! April 10: Feed Your Kids Wisely

Parents and faculty of Lincoln, Willard and Roosevelt School students, please join us for our 4th Parent Forum sponsored by Lincoln PTO:

“FEED Your Kids Wisely”

Thursday, April 10

7:00 PM

Presented by Lara Field, MS, RD, CSP, LDN, owner/founder of FEED KIDS LLC

Kids need guidance when it comes to making smart eating decisions, and as parents we can use a nudge in the right direction as well. Lara Field will enlighten us by revealing the vital tools needed to establish healthy habits that nourish our children and encourage them to develop healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.

The forum is about 90 minutes including an introduction, presentation, then Q and A. Many attendees enjoy taking time to digest the new information during the Q & A with other parents.

Come join us as we fuel up on ways to FEED our kids wisely, prevent future disease, and keep our families from running on empty.
