First Tastes: Starting Weaning
I help busy parents feel confident and excited about introducing their baby to solid foods, through my weaning workshop.
This weaning workshop is for you if you’re wondering:
How do I know if my baby is ready for weaning?
Is Baby Led Weaning the best approach?
Can I start weaning my baby at 4 months?
How do I offer food safely to avoid choking or gagging?
When do I move on from one food?
You’re absolutely in the right place.
I love helping parents introduce food to their babies - it is such an exciting moment for both of you.
As a children's nutritionist, and mum, I am perfectly placed to combine scientific know-how with real world practicality. I have been there, done that, read the research.
Do you need to attend a weaning workshop before introducing solids? No, of course not. There is a wealth of information on the internet and social media for free. If you are very lucky, there might be NHS weaning group near you. But the internet is huge, and there is a lot of misinformation and opinion for you to mine through, trying to find the answer to your question.
This is where a weaning workshop, run by an experienced nutritionist comes in.
