KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A new chapter of First Ladies for Healthy Babies is starting up in Knoxville.

The effort has been organized by Tennessee First Lady Crissy Haslam.

The program aims to educate women in the church, from pastor's wives to church leaders, on healthy eating practices and the brain development of young children.

They hope to start conversations and create mentorship opportunities for young parents.

"We've learned so much about brain development in the last five to ten years, and a lot of parents don't understand what they can do at home, simple things they can do with their children. And a lot of these young parents, where do they go for information? They go to their church," said Haslam.

Chapters are already up and running in Memphis and Nashville.
