For healthy babies

The mission of Fondation Olo is to give families an equal chance of bringing a healthy baby into the world and introducing them to healthy eating habits early in life. Established in 1991, Olo takes action during the critical period of the first 1,000 days of life, from pregnancy until the child turns two. Babies are born healthier and learn healthy eating habits early in life, which helps them grow and thrive. Olo follow-up care is provided by the healthcare and social services network and by a growing number of indigenous communities and community organizations, and works two ways:

  • Helps babies be born healthy and strong: Olo offers customized nutritional support and personal assistance to expectant mothers by providing prenatal vitamins and food vouchers redeemable for eggs, milk and frozen vegetables. This “Olo trio” of foods fulfills a significant portion of a pregnant woman’s daily nutritional requirements.
  • Helps families learn healthy eating habits: Olo provides professional advice and educational tools for parents, such as the Olo Blog, to encourage three healthy eating habits early on in life: eating well, making home-cooked meals and enjoying family mealtimes.
Eating a nutritious diet during pregnancy and maintaining healthy eating during the first two years of a child’s life can be challenging for a number of parents. Power Corporation is proud to help babies get a healthy start in life, the positive impacts of which will be felt for many years to come.
