There are so many issues that home visitors need to cover on a home visit that it can seem overwhelming. But one of the most important influences you can have on a family comes from coaching them on physical activity and nutrition. Habits that start as early as pregnancy can influence a life of healthy eating and activity; the keys to long term health.
The Empower Home Visiting Guidebook is full of resources to make you an effective coach. Online webinars are available with tips on how to build support for women to reach breastfeeding goals, recognizing and responding to infant hunger/fullness cues, strategies to prepare healthy meals at home, food safety practices for breast milk and infant formula and much more! Just go to the JOIN tab for the full list of webinars.
