BABIES put their best foot forward on Saturday as the Child Friendly Communities Roma committee held its first Baby Welcoming Ceremony at the Big Rig.

Held in conjunction with the monthly Farmers Markets, it was a celebration of all the children born in the Maranoa in the past 12 months.

Mums and bubs lined up to receive a welcoming gift pack and the little ones had their feet painted so they could add their unique footprint to a mural to celebrate the day.

Salvation Army Envoy Judith McAvoy was also on hand to bless the babies.

Carlie Watson from CFC Roma said the committee's aim was to make Roma a safe, secure, and fun place to raise children.

"The welcoming ceremony signifies the special role people played as parents in the community," Ms Watson said.

Ms Watson said it was one of several initiatives such as the parenting van for changing and feeding at public events that made life a little easier for parents.
