Smart Start for Babies
Smart Start for Babies is a free weekly prenatal nutrition program. The class is offered to pregnant women who have a difficult time accessing healthy food. Partners, or a support person, are also encouraged to attend.
Smart Start for Babies is offered on different days of the week and in different areas of London and Middlesex County. The 1 ½ - 2 hour group sessions are led by Public Health Nurses and Registered Dietitians. We have one group that is for pregnant teens called Smart Start for Babies-Teens.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic all Smart Start for Babies Classes are cancelled until further notice. If you require support, please call 519-663-5317 to speak to a Public Health Nurse.
To register and for more information, please call the Health Unit at 519-663-5317 (Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
