The Lake County Health Department’s Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) invites pregnant women, parents, and families to a “Family Fun Day” on Saturday, August 3, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to noon outside the Belvidere Medical Building (2400 Belvidere Road, Waukegan). In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week, the event will feature participation in the “Big Latch On,” where breastfeeding moms come together across the world to latch their babies at the same time with the support of their partners and family.
During the event, families can play games and win prizes, learn about breastfeeding, WIC and other local resources, enjoy light refreshments, and participate in scheduled activities:
- 9:30 a.m. Zumba Exercise Class
- 10:30 a.m. ‘Big Latch On’
- 11:00 a.m. Healthy Cooking Demonstration
In the event of rain, the celebration will be held in the lower level conference room in the Belvidere Medical Building.
