About the Workshop
When your baby has only had milk, whether it is breast or formula, the thought of giving them ‘real’ food can be a daunting one. Weaning your baby on to solid food is currently recommended at 6 months. It is advisable to do the course from 4 months onwards so you have the information ready.
This course will show how your little one can have the same healthy and varied food as you setting the foundations for enjoying happy, fuss free meal times and avoiding hours in the kitchen! Food is such a big part of our lives and it will be fun to see your baby taste different foods for the first time – the facial expressions are priceless!
Often parents need the opportunity to ask questions and avoid the confusion, which different books and websites can lead to! This Weaning course gives you information about the various options – traditional purees, fingers foods and ‘Baby Led Weaning’ and stages introducing food. The course also covers teething, cups, dummies, food hygiene and recipe ideas.
If you have any queries or would like to hold the course at Earthlife with a group of friends please contact Katherine on 07796 942 771 or firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the form below.
