Etobicoke Pre and Post Natal Nutrition Program

Nutrition education for pregnant mothers

The Etobicoke Pre & Post Natal Nutrition Project is a community-based program that provides health, social, and nutritional support to women and teens during pregnancy and the first year of their baby's life.

The project has two programs:

  • Eating for Two

  • Feeding with Love

The Eating for Two Prenatal Nutrition Program 

This program is designed to encourage healthy pregnancies and reduce the risk of low birth weight babies among pregnant women and teenagers living on low incomes. The program also supports women who have limited social support and who may be new to Canada. Eating for Two has six sites located throughout Etobicoke, two sites serving the teen population. 

“The team is very, very helpful and whenever we have questions, they help us like a family member. I’m really, really thankful for them.”
– Participant, Eating For Two Program

The Feeding With Love Postnatal Nutrition Program

This program is designed to encourage healthy eating for women and their babies living on low incomes. This program provides a continuum of care for women and their children up to twelve months. Etobicoke has four sites located throughout Etobicoke, one site specifically serving the teen population.

“[Eating For Two] gives resource information where [mothers] can find housing, dental care, and how to introduce food to babies at different stages of their lives.”
– Rhonda Tremblett, Program Worker

“I didn’t know anything about pregnancy because it was my first child – so I had a lot of questions about how to deal with the kids and how to deal with a first pregnancy.”
– Participant, Eating For Two Program
