Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP) is a community based initiative federally funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada
Girls Inc. of Durham is the administrator of CPNP for Durham Region known as Food 4 Thought. A drop-in program for pregnant teens and new young mothers up to age 26 operated at seven sites throughout Durham Region.
Food '4' Thought drop-ins provide a safe, friendly environment where women can obtain advice from health care providers and other moms, get materials on health and wellness, and receive fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, and prenatal vitamins. The program goal is to enhance maternal and fetal health by reducing the risks for pregnant women who may have food security issues. Women may come to a site any time during their pregnancy and continue to receive support until their infants are 6 months of age. The program focuses on nutrition so as to reduce the incidence of low birth weight, increase the number of breastfeeding mothers, provide linkages to other community services and improve the health and well-being of moms.
