I started weaning.ie as a facebook page in 2016. It was a hobby of sorts, a place where I could connect with parents in an honest, evidenced based, unbiased, unsponsored way. As a registered Paediatric Dietitian bound by her professional registration I could provide parents with what I felt was missing in the world of feeding children!

In 2017, I started weaning classes at my kitchen table. From here I moved to live classes in Airfield Estate, Malahide Castle and Newbridge house.

While continuing to work in CHI@ Temple street, I moved weaning.ie online in 2020. On June 11th 2021 I took the plunge into self employment! What a six months it has been! I have had my best year to date:
