A specialist programme which offers first time teenage mothers in Tayside extra support is being hailed a success.
A party was staged in Dundee to mark the first anniversary of the Family Nurse Partnership.
The NHS scheme involves a nurse visiting mothers under the age of 19 every one or two weeks during pregnancy and throughout the first two years of their baby's life.
The nurses offer guidance on child development, preventative health measures, parenting skills, breastfeeding, diet information and advice for mothers on education and employment.
Ms Sturgeon said: "It's a project we're keen to roll out right across Scotland because it's got proven results. It helps support young mothers back into work or back into education and make sure they're doing the right things when their kids are small to give them the best start in life."
The plan is to extend the initiative to communities throughout Scotland in future.
