Council’s Active Mums and Kids – Exercise and Nutrition workshop will help mums tackle the challenges of childhood nutrition.

Council is offering free exercise and nutrition advice for mums and their kids.
 
The two-hour workshop will explain the importance of exercise and good nutrition for mums and kids. It’s an extension of Council’s successful Active Mums Noosa program.
 
Guest speakers are nutritionist Tara Leong, pregnancy and post-natal exercise expert Edwina Griffin, and child, youth and family health nurse Julie Fynmore.
 
Tara Leong is the founder of Baby Guru Nutrition and The Nutrition Guru and The Chef blogs. The university lecturer and radio personality has 62,000 social media followers looking for down-to-earth, fad-free, nutrition advice. Leong aims to help mums navigate the maze of diets and conflicting information on the web.
 
“It's really important to get the right nutrition advice from those who are qualified in nutrition, so that you don't go around in circles trying diets that don't work, or following nutrition advice that could be very dangerous,” she said.
 
Council Community Development Officer Amanda Tie says mums looking to start exercise after a long break will benefit from Edwina Griffin’s advice.
 
Griffin has over 20 years’ experience in personal training. As the founder of Fitmum and Fitwomen fitness programs she knows the needs of mums and the exercises they should tackle.
 
“Edwina has plenty of good advice for mums who are either keen to get back into exercise after childbirth, or start exercising with their children, which is a great way to set a healthy example for them,” Ms Tie said.
 
Julie Fynmore from Sunshine Coast Community Health Service will talk about children’s development, and offer mums important self-care tips.
 
Council has teamed up with the Department of National Parks Sport and Racing to host the Active Mums and Kids - Exercise and Nutrition workshop.
 
“We’ll provide a morning tea, plus the event is child friendly with a free crèche available so we hope to see lots of mums come along and make the most of the event,” Ms Tie said.
 
The workshop will take place Tuesday, 15 November, 9.30-11.30am at Noosa Leisure Centre. Register online at www.noosa.qld.gov.au/active-mums or phone (07) 5459 6176.
