What we do
Baby Nutrition Class:
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.
I am a qualified and experienced Paediatric Dietitian. I have over 10 years experience working with children and their families. As a working Mum to two young children I know that time is limited. My aim is to empower you so that weaning and feeding your family is a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Weaning.ie is the science behind baby and child nutrition in an informal setting.
I discuss the nutrients that your baby needs to grow and develop, the quantities of each and the best sources. We discuss the foods you are already eating and which are suitable for baby, we look at suitable finger foods. I have lots of commercial baby foods. We look at food labels and what to watch out for. We discuss all the common food related problems such as fussy eating, constipation, iron deficiency anaemia etc. and how to prevent them. I like the class to be interactive so please ask lots of questions.
Please read the reviews to see what others have thought of the class. Baby is welcome! The class is of course open to Mums and Dads.
I am a member of the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute and registered with CORU (www.indi.ie and www.coru.ie).
Cost depends on the location of the class but includes presentation, handouts, Q&A, refreshments. Class size limited and lasts ~2 hours.
Get some friends together and I will come to you. Make a coffee morning out of it and learn the nutritional needs of your baby.
Don’t know how to cook for your family? No problem I can teach you, we can pick suitable meals together and I will teach you the rest.

Stay tuned - there is lots more to come from weaning.ie!
