Event description


Research shows that the early foods that infants are exposed to can predict their longer term eating habits. Adopting the right approach now can make mealtimes a whole lot easier in the future, and ensure your child enjoys a broad range of foods.

This workshop is designed to answer all your weaning-related queries and make the introduction of solids a fun and enjoyable process for yourself and your little one.

Topics we will be covering include:

· What to introduce and when should we start?

· Stages of food introduction

· Responsive feeding styles that suit your individual baby

· Puree vs Baby-led approaches

· Commercial vs Homemade baby foods

· Choking vs gagging (and what to do)

· Establishing good mealtime habits and routines

· Nutritional needs and vitamin supplements for babies from 6 months

· Reducing the risk of food allergies

· Interpreting food labels

· Food Safety Advice

· Early approaches to avoid a fussy eater

· Meal and Snack Ideas for different stages

We will;

· talk you through the latest evidence and advice and look at how this advice could work for you and your family, adopting an approach that suits your baby as an individual

You will come away with

  • Ideas, skills and approaches for introducing solids to your baby
  • A better understanding of your babies developmental and nutritional needs at this age
  • Some useful handouts to help you remember the factual stuff and provide lots of practical ideas for mealtimes

You are welcome to attend with or without your baby. Partners are encouraged to attend as well.

This workshop is recommended for those with babies from around 14 weeks of age. A lot of the content of the workshop will still be useful even if you have already started weaning your little one.

Workshops are a maximum of 15 people and the price of £35 includes a hot drink, plenty of evidence-based information to take home and a goody bag.

The Wheatstone Inn is an informal venue located just outside of Gloucester (next to the bowling and Premier Inn). It is easy to access, has plenty of parking, and provides the option to purchase breakfast before the session or lunch afterwards.

Before purchasing a ticket for this event please ensure you have read and accept the Terms and Conditions for this event.

Please note that partners pay a concessionary rate of £5 which includes a hot drink (we envisage you being able to share the goody bag!).
