Hi my name is Michelle and I’m Laura and we’re your Haldimand-Norfolk Public Health
Dietitians. We’ve created a series of short 60 second videos to help your preschooler
get the best nutrition possible. They’re based on the NutriSTEP screening tool for
preschoolers. NutriSTEP stands for Nutrition Screening Tool
for Every Preschooler. It’s a nutrition questionnaire for children ages 3-5. It’s
a fast and simple way for parents and health care providers to assess the eating habits
of young children and identify nutrition problems early. The questionnaire only takes about
5 minutes to complete. Contact us at the Haldimand-Norfolk Health
Unit, or your local public health unit for more information. Whether you are a concerned
parent or caregiver or a health care provider interested in using the questionnaire in your
practice, give us a call at the health unit. We can be reached at (519) 426-6170 or online
