The Foundation is very excited as today it launches a new program called NICU Food From the Heart ~ it’s a loving program that will provide support to families of premature & sick babies staying in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Families of premature and sick babies can spend days, months and sometimes a year caring for their baby/s in hospital. They are often so focused on baby’s care they forget to take care of themselves. Caring for a baby in the NICU is stressful and exhausting, and going without proper nourishing meals exacerbates this. NICU Food From the Heart aims to provide loving and practical care and support to the families who are working so hard to care for their babies.
NICU Food From the Heart provides two programs to families in the NICU to help ensure they stay well and healthy so that they can care for their baby/s. These are the Brekkie Bar and Dad’s Night and you can read more about them HERE.
“Food brings people together, and in the NICU it’s more important than ever – it brings families together in their toughest times to share stories, chat and connect with those in a similar position”
