Healthy Beginnings

Care and Learning Alliance’s Healthy Beginnings project supports and helps parents and carers with practical budgeting, shopping and cooking skills. We’re also advising on breastfeeding and weaning, to encourage healthy eating, and we’re having great fun trying out simple recipes at Toddler Groups.

Our Toddler Group Facilitators are working with parents and children in 80 CALA Toddler Groups across Highland to make sure everyone knows about Healthy Start vouchers and vitamins. Healthy Start is a UK-national programme that provides food vouchers for milk, fruits and vegetables and supplies vitamin supplements to breastfeeding mothers and children under the age of 4 who are in receipt of certain benefits. You can find out more about the programme at the Healthy Start website.
