Why is a healthy diet for an adult not the same as a healthy diet for a baby? Is cow's milk ok in under 1s? What is the best milk for over ones? Should I use wholegrains? Which yoghurts are best? What is a portion size? When is meat ok? Which meats are best? Is Kale better than red meat? What about salt? What pouches are best? How much milk does my baby need? Should I give my baby chia seeds?
In my class I answer all these questions and many more. I discuss the nutrients that your baby needs, the quantities and the best sources. I discuss the foods you are already eating and which are suitable for baby, we look at suitable finger foods. We discuss food labels and food trickery/what to watch out for. We look at commerical baby foods. I discuss all the common problems such as fussy eating, constipation, iron deficiency anaemia etc. and how to prevent them.
I am a qualified Paediatric Dietitian. I have over 10 years experience in a children's hospital. I am a working Mum to two and know that time is limited. My aim is to empower you so that weaning is relaxed and enjoyable for you, your baby and family. Weaning.ie is the science behind weaning in an informal setting.
Weaning is a process and is an important part of your child's development, not only nutritionally but developmentally and socially. Getting it right sets a great foundation for future health.
Please read the reviews to see what others have thought. I am happy to provide ongoing online support to anyone that attends the class. Baby is welcome!
I am a member of the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute and registered with CORU (www.indi.ie and www.coru.ie).
