When to use this resource

This resource is part of the Growing strong: feeding you and your baby set of resources developed by Queensland Health to help health staff talk with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families about nutrition for pregnant women. It would be suitable for individual or group settings, not only for pregnant women but also women who were considering a pregnancy. The brouchure could be left in community or health centres for clients to look at, or take home, for future guidance.
