The Childhood Feeding Collaborative of Santa Clara County addresses the problem of obesity and poor eating among young children by working to improve parenting skills around feeding at the earliest possible opportunity.
The Collaborative provides information and training in best feeding practices to pediatric healthcare providers, public health programs and community-based organizations in order that parents receive a consistent and best practice feeding message from each of their service providers. We offer a free parenting class to parents, 5 Keys to Raising a Healthy, Happy Eater. For organizational partners and parents alike, the intervention is Satter’s Division of Responsibility in Feeding.
Childhood Feeding Collaborative partners in Santa Clara County include Valley Medical Center and Community Health Partnership pediatric clinics, WIC programs, Black Infant Health, Adolescent Family Life Program, Public Health Nursing, Valley Health Plan, Santa Clara Family Health Plan, Choices For Children, Head Start, Pediatric Healthy Lifestyle Center, Breastfeeding Taskforce, Mental Health, FIRST 5, and more than 30 community organizations providing health or parenting education to parents.
