Help your baby learn to be an adventurous and healthy eater from the very beginning.
Evidence shows that babies who feed themselves and have control over their diet can become less fussy, healthier eaters in childhood and even long into adulthood. This approach is fun for baby and for parents, is much easier and less time-consuming than pureeing and spoon-feeding, and is much less likely to lead to power struggles and heartache at the family table.
This insightful 2.5-hour workshop will help you to understand current weaning guidelines and will give you all the information and confidence you need to embark on this fun and practical approach to introducing solids to your baby.
You will learn:
The science behind baby weaning
How to avoid having a picky eater
How to introduce finger foods to your baby
Ideas on some (inexpensive) equipment you may want to acquire
Ideas of food options for home and away
How to make weaning easy and enjoyable for you and your baby
Baby sign language you can use during feeding to make communication easier for your baby
What to do if you baby chokes (and how to tell the difference between gagging and choking)
This is a great class for both mums and dads and is most suited to babies aged 4 months plus.
Parents with older babies who wish to switch from spoon-feeding to baby led are also welcome to join.
Babies are welcome to attend as well.
