The Macdonald Healthy Child committee is a network of volunteers dedicated to supporting community based programs and activities for children, youth and their families. Areas of focus include:

  • Parenting
  • Nutrition & Physical Health
  • Literacy
  • Community Capacity Building  

Macdonald Healthy Child programs are offered free of charge due to funding support from the Healthy Child Coalition Central Region and are a great way to have fun with your child. Program planning is ongoing, please let us know if there is a program you would like in your community. Some of the programs offered are "Shake, Rattle & Roll, Family Fun Time, Toddler Shenanigans and Mindful Munchkins." Donations to the program are gratefully accepted.

Make sure to check out the current Healthy Child programs in the Macdonald-Headingley Program & Community Resource Guide.

If you'd like more information on Macdonald Healthy Child, are interested in volunteering or becoming a program facilitator, please contact any committee member.
