Etobicoke Pre & Post Natal Nutrition Project (EPPNNP)

The Etobicoke Pre & Post Natal Nutrition Project is a community-based program that provides health, social and nutritional support to women and teens during pregnancy and the first year of their baby's life. The project has two programs, Eating for Two and Feeding with Love. 

The Eating for Two Prenatal Nutrition Program is designed to encourage healthy pregnancies and reduce the risk of low birth weight babies among pregnant women and teenagers living on low incomes. The program also supports women who have limited social support and who may be new to Canada. Eating for Two has six sites located throughout Etobicoke, two sites serving the teen population.

The Feeding With Love Postnatal Nutrition Program is designed to encourage healthy eating for women and their babies living on low incomes. This program provides a continuum of care for women and their children up to twelve months. Etobicoke has four sites located throughout Etobicoke, one site specifically serving the teen population.
