Parents

Parental involvement and participation is highly instrumental to the success of children's sustained health and wellness. Our Parent Involvement component of the program equips families with up-to-date information regarding nutrition, fitness, safety, illness prevention, and other health topics. Our professional staff present fun, family-centered activities and events to encourage greater interest and awareness in these important topics.

 

Health Talks

Encourage your school to include Health Talks during parent events. Health Talks take place onsite at your child’s school. We present information regarding preventive health topics along with providing helpful resources. Please join us if you are interested in learning about various preventive health topics in a relaxed environment. Health Talk sessions are only 30 minutes. Featured topics include Asthma Management, Poison Prevention, Lice Prevention, Childhood Obesity, Flu Prevention, or Immunization Awareness. Watch for flyers around the school or in your child’s backpack for upcoming Health Talk events!

The purpose of Farmers’ Market Information Session and Tour is to provide you with information about Tulsa’s Farmers’ Market. We provide a 30 minute information session that provides education on three topics: General Market Information, SNAP at the Market, and the Double Up Oklahoma program. The tour follows the information session allowing you to experience the market and utilize the information you have received. Watch for flyers around the school or in your child’s backpack for upcoming Farmers’ Market events!
