Parenting at Mealtime and Playtime (PMP)


The Parenting at Mealtime and Playtime (PMP) Learning Collaborative offers resources to pediatric practices to help counsel families of infants and young children (ages birth to 5 years) about good nutrition and positive parent-child interactions during mealtime and playtime. This Quality Improvement program provides tools for physicians to enhance prevention counseling strategies, become adept at assessing “risk,” and intervene at the earliest possible stage before a child is overweight.


REGIONAL TRAININGS: The PMP team is excited to present regional trainings in 2017 and all regions of the state! The PMP program fuses nutrition and play guidance with the parent-child interaction during meals, playtime and daily structure. The trainings, being offered across the state, provide an innovative, sustainable approach to building healthy habits among birth to five-year-olds.
