‘What’s in your lunchbox’ focus of parent workshop


NAUGATUCK—Naugatuck Discovery’s next Parent Toolbox workshop will look to shine some light on “What’s in your lunchbox.”

The workshop, which will be held May 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the cafeteria of Prospect Street Preschool, will focus on healthy nutrition for children.

Catherine O’Donnell-Murphy, food service manager with Sodexo Food Service, will discuss healthy food choices, how to get nutritious foods in the “picky” child and the Naugatuck school system’s breakfast/lunch and the free and reduced programs.

Edy McClure, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, will talk about healthy and simple family dinner choices and provide the opportunity to sample a simple meal.

Naugatuck Discovery is a local collaborative with a focus on helping children succeed by strengthening the community of families, individuals and organizations who nurture and educate Naugatuck children from birth to age 8.
