Educational tools

Educational tools are given to parents during their Olo follow-up meetings. They are designed to promote healthy eating for the whole family, before and after baby arrives.

Fondation Olo also offers a whole array of online content to help families develop healthy eating habits early on in their child’s life. These resources are available on the Olo blog: Parents’ everyday helper.
