DESCRIPTION 
We are bringing you a one-day conference of diverse experts to share evidence-based practices, resources, ideas, and the latest in research for fostering quality early learning experiences for children 0-8 years old that you can attend from the comfort of your own home.

DETAILS

Our goal is to help parents and caregivers prepare healthy meals and snacks by sharing recipes, tips and ideas that are geared for children ages 2 to 5. This will help children eat more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods along with reducing the mealtime stress of feeding young children.

Summer in Nebraska is usually characterized by warm sunny days that fuel thunderstorms popping up in the afternoon and evening hours.  Heavy rain, hail, and damaging winds are no stranger to us.  This year in the northern part of the state however it seems like the heavy rain has gotten a bit carried away.  While a bit of excess moisture is always welcome, the continual deluge this summer has left low lying hay ground flooded, fields hailed out, and producers scrambling to put up they hay they can get to in the narrow window between storms.  

We have a wonderful opportunity to collect information from working pregnant women living in rural Nebraska and need your help. We want to hear these women’s ideas about infant care as well as their plans after their baby is born!

We are looking for expectant working women (in their third trimester or close to that) living in Nebraska.  We plan to meet with them for a total of three times over the duration of one year, and, after each visit, compensation is provided for their time.  Additional information about the study is provided in the flyer.
