Healthy Okaloosa Worksites Launch Breastfeeding-in-a-Box Kits

Healthy Okaloosa Worksites Launch Breastfeeding-in-a-Box Kits

Healthy Okaloosa Worksites celebrated National Breastfeeding Awareness Month by launching Breastfeeding-in-a-Box kits! Kits include educational materials for Human Resources staff, new parent packets, posters and rack cards about breastfeeding for display in breakrooms, breastfeeding room signage, a small cooler for breastmilk storage in staff refrigerators and a list of ways worksites can support breastfeeding. Okaloosa CHD staff delivered them to local worksites during August. They hope the kits will encourage the implementation of breastfeeding policies and creation of private breastfeeding rooms, increasing the number of mothers who initiate breastfeeding.
