Central Rivers Farmshed

We organize events, programs, workshops and resources that help support a local food economy.

**We are sad to announce that unfortunately, due to lack of interest, this workshop has been cancelled for 2017.**

Come join us to learn how to make nutritious food for your little one from fresh and local produce!

The first hour of the workshop will be geared towards purees and the second hour will be geared towards finger foods. Participants will gain knowledge and hands on experience with making these foods!

Meet the presenter:

Ashley Chrisinger is a registered dietitian specializing in childhood nutrition programs and cancer prevention. She completed her Masters in Nutrition from UWSP in the spring of 2016. She did her dietetic internship through the University of Maryland. Before moving to Stevens Point, she worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America, counseling patients who were undergoing cancer treatment on optimal nutrition for their unique situations. This work motivated her to focus on the research behind cancer prevention. And the best time to start focusing on cancer prevention is with children!

Having two kids of her own, Ashley is well-aware of the information available to parents on how to feed their child. As both a dietitian and a parent, she finds this information to be wildly insufficient. She’s hoping this workshop will not only empower parents to make their child’s food from local sources rather than shopping the baby food isle, but also give them the opportunity to discover the resources available in their community to answer future questions about how to feed their children!

During the workshop we will cover:

  1. How to choose the best foods for baby starting with first foods and moving through finger foods
  2. The best cooking methods for various foods
  3. How to puree baby foods when baby isn’t ready for chunkier textures
  4. Which foods make the most nutritious finger foods for babies/toddlers and how to prepare them
  5. How to store baby food and finger foods when making large batches

Registration for the workshop is $30 for members and $35 for nonmembers
