The Parent Support Group was held on February 25, 2019 on a Monday. Phoebe Pennypacker, the school psychologist and myself the school nurse moderated the meeting which started at 4 pm and lasted until 5:30pm. We showed a Basic Nutrition video from You Tube and it was Module 1 from the Basic Nutrition series. We had several handouts from the WE CAN program from the National Institute of Health (NIH). These included parent tips and how to read a food label, among other information. The parent that attended stated that she appreciated the information and will continue looking for information regarding picky eaters and autism.

There were handouts from WE CAN. This was a good website from the NIH - National Institute of Health. It has a plethora of information regarding nutrition.
There are other websites that are good resources for health and nutrition and they include American Diabetes Association, Mayo Clinic, ChooseMyPlate.com and others that will be listed in future postings. Enjoy!! Here is a link for a Bill Nye the Science Guy Video for Nutrition . It is silly in a Bill Nye way but full of good information.
