The Growing Healthy Together – Prenatal program offers prenatal and nutrition information, healthy snacks, and peer support in a group format to pregnant individuals experiencing risk factors including low income, newcomer status and poor nutrition, in community locations throughout Scarborough.

The program provides various topics related to healthy pregnancy, nutrition, and community resources delivered in partnership with community agencies, such as EarlyON centres and community health centres, with guest speakers from a variety of local community organizations. Staff also provide one to one nutrition counselling and opportunities to connect with peers.
