Would you like some tips for fun play activities to do with your child? Do you have a picky eater? Do you want to enjoy mealtime with your child? There’s an app for that!
The Ohio Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and Ohio Department of Health are excited to offer parents the Parenting at Mealtime and Playtime Mobile App! Doctors, experts and dietitians helped develop the app, which is designed to provide parents and caregivers of children ages birth to 5 years with easy access to trusted, age-appropriate advice outside of their doctor’s office.
While it is important that parents talk to their pediatricians about questions and concerns during regular office visits, the app provides a wealth of information and resources that can help them through the daily work of parenting.
This visually appealing app is organized by age and includes helpful videos and photos. You will be able to access:
- Nutrition and activity tips for children from birth to age 5
- Interactive videos from parenting and nutrition experts on a range of hot topics
- Developmental milestones to enjoy at each age
- Text reminders about milestones and appointments
- Printable handouts that parents share with friends and family
- A private profile page with access to free resources
