Tuesday, November 24th: Healthy Holidays with Dr. Patricia and Serving Kids Hope @Pretend City Museum
Join us from 11:00-Noon for some Healthy Holiday activities with Dr. Patricia and her team from the organization Serving Kids Hope. Dr. Patricia will be leading a parent discussion group about how to encourage healthy eating habits in young children. She will also be giving parents tips for how to deal with picky eaters, how to get your child to sleep, and the importance of communication in the home. She will end the discussion with a guided visualization which she says are very beneficial for helping your child to fall asleep easily. Parents that purchase Dr. Patricia’s Book Fit Kids Revolution from our bookstore on this day will be entered into an opportunity drawing to win a free visit and consultation with Dr. Patricia. Or a Family 4 pack to Pretend City. Dr. Patricia will be signing books and answering questions immediately following her discussion just outside the Pretend City Entrance Gate.
While the Parents are enjoying Dr. Patricia’s presentation; children 2 years and up can join her team in the adjacent community room for two fun and engaging activities. Children will read the book Stone Soup and make some healthy soup of their own to try. Then they will participate in a Gingerbread Picasso activity where they will be decorating their very own gingerbread figurines to take home and hang on the tree.
Pre-Registration is required for this event to ensure that enough materials are provided for each child and parent in attendance. The 1st 50 that register and attend will be entered to win the book Fit Kids Revolution by Jon Gabriel & Patricia A. Ronald Riba, MD.
Grown-up Tip: Offer healthy food options multiple times throughout the day to increase the likelihood of your child getting the nutrition that they need. They may refuse or not eat certain offerings at first, but with time and consistency they will began to enjoy and even crave the fruits and vegetables that you provide.
