Raising Our Healthy Kids is a series of short 60 – 90 second videos providing information to parents and care providers on healthy growth and development of children up to 12 years of age. The first 7 are now freely available and focus on healthy eating and the feeding relationship in the first 2 years of life. Additional topics will focus on active living and play, positive parenting, oral health, and mental health promotion. There will also be videos that provide an Aboriginal context and some will be translated into French.

The videos will be useful for:
  • Parents
  • Health care providers who work with parents
  • Childcare workers and agencies that provide services to parents of young children

Raising Our Healthy Kids - Infant Nutrition Videos
They are available to the public online at: https://vimeo.com/raisingourhealthykids/videos.

The videos were developed by a multi-stakeholder group including Dietitians of Canada and Alberta Health Services and with input from physicians and community stakeholders across Canada. The nutrition videos are based on evidence and are consistent with information with messages from Dietitians of Canada, Health Canada and Alberta Health Services.

Funding was provided by Government of Alberta, Calgary Health Trust, and Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and the videos were produced by Shadow Light Productions. Financial support for French translations provided by EatRight Ontario.
