Starting Solids Session

Introducing solid food is one of those milestones many parents really look forward to. It can also be daunting and the cause of much confusion and anxiety around things like ensuring baby is getting the right nutrients, which foods are best for starting with and how much baby should be eating.

All this and more is covered on the BABIES Starting Solids Session.

Our 2 and a half hour workshop on weaning your baby provides you with all of the following:

  • Signs baby is ready for solids
  • Potential obstacles for weaning
  • Styles of weaning and what they mean
  • Equipment needed
  • Best first weaning foods
  • Foods to avoid in the early stages
  • Allergies and intolerances
  • Health and safety around weaning
  • How much baby needs
  • Ensuring a healthy and balanced diet
  • Drinking
  • And much, much more!

During the session, we will be sampling a variety of foods as well as preparing a dish or two for you to take home! You will also receive a recipe booklet and be added to a Starting Solids Facebook group, where you can chat, ask questions and share experiences of weaning with other parents and your weaning workshop tutor.

Our workshop has been put together with the input of a Nutritionist and a First Aid Instructor and content is in line with NHS and Unicef guidelines.

Workshops are £30 per person (£50 per couple) and take place at The Secret Garden, Sun Street Hitchin.

Course dates will be added soon. Please continue to check back for updates. Starting Solids Session will only be available in Hitchin, primarily
