Since 1991, Fondation OLO has been partnering with the practitioners who work with vulnerable families to offer food (eggs, milk and orange juice) and prenatal vitamins, as part of a nutritional education program aimed at reducing the number of low-birth-weight babies.
Today, Fondation OLO provides tools and services to empower parents so they can help their children learn healthy eating habits. Fondation OLO supports action in the field by targeting the period from pregnancy to the child’s second year of life. This focus on early action includes promoting three behaviours: eating well, cooking and having family meals.
Fondation OLO helps low-income families bring healthy babies into the world and teach them healthy eating habits early on.
We want all babies to have an equal chance of coming into the world healthy and of adopting sound eating habits early on in life.
To achieve this, Fondation OLO develops innovative tools and methods, contributes to advancing practices and works with partners to deploy services to families throughout Quebec.
