Huggies on ‘par’ with Plunket’s golf day

For the past nine years, Kimberley Clark (KC), as part of their sustainability programme, challenge themselves to make positive contributions to communities throughout New Zealand. For one day a year, KC staff down pens and pick up tools to help different community organisations in any way they can. Plunket has been fortunate to have KC volunteer their services for two initiatives – first, the makeover of the Plunket Waitemata Area Family Centre in 2009, and more recently, helping at Plunket’s first inaugural golf tournament.

Hands-on introduction to baby’s first solids

 
Sometimes we learn better by doing, and that was just what Kaipatiki Plunket parents in Glenfield Auckland had the opportunity to do recently at the first practical introduction to solids. The session, a joint initiative between the clinical team and community support, was designed to follow on from the Karitane introduction to solids session and allow parents to be hands-on and observe how to prepare their baby’s first foods. “We were hearing more and more often that parents didn’t have the skills or knowledge about how to prepare their baby’s first foods, and in our community a lot of new parents don’t have family support so they don’t have a mum or grandmother to ask for help,” says local Community Support Coordinator Raelene Fraser.
