Mums and tots enjoy North Devon Farm Park
Families enjoy fun day out at breastfeeding awareness event
FAMILIES gathered at North Devon Farm Park on Wednesday to celebrate the benefits of breast feeding with the charity Action for Children.
The youngsters were treated to a range of fun activities, feeding the lambs and stroking the goats while mothers discussed the benefits with professionals and shared experiences.
The event was organised by children’s charity Action for Children which runs nine children’s centres across North Devon in partnership with Devon County Council.
“Breastfeeding is the healthiest way for a woman to feed her baby so we are absolutely delighted to be holding a fun event to celebrate breastfeeding with our families,” said Jane Southwick, manager of Bideford Bay and Holsworthy centres.
