For parenting tips and updates from local experts, don't miss the Calgary's Child Magazine Parenting Segment on the  Global Calgary Morning News Show every Monday morning! Each segment has a different guest and topic, and our segment airs at approximately 8:25am.

Monday, October 22
Guest: Sarah Remmer, RD/Owner of The Centre for Family Nutrition 
Topic: Thinking Outside the Rice Cereal Box: Three Foods that are Perfect for Babies Starting Solids! Starting solids can be such a fun experience, but it can also be a bit nerve-wracking! There’s so much information out there about when to start, what to start with, and how to feed your baby real food. Tune in for Sarah's expert nutritional advice on the five best foods to feed your baby and why.

Monday, October 29
Guest: Sandra Werle, M.Ed., Education Consultant, The Children's Link Society
Topic: You have just received a special needs diagnosis for your child - now what? After receiving a diagnosis, it is natural to feel overwhelmed and experience many emotions. But a diagnosis is not predictive of whether or not your child will lead a happy meaningful life, and it is not reflective of you, the parent. Tune in for Sandra's professional guidance, crucial tips, and encouragement to help everyone in your family move forward and thrive. 

Monday, November 5
Guest: Ellen Percival, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, Calgary's Child Magazine
Topic: Tune in for Ellen's top events in our great city for frosty family-friendly fun - indoors and out!
