Baby led weaning – Nicola Ragon-Paxton, Registered Nutritionist at Happy Tums

Nicola will be covering the key principals of the baby led weaning approach to weaning, including when to start, how to prepare food in a way that baby can successfully eat it, what to feed your baby and how to manage when we eventually get to go out and about! She’ll touch on some of the latest research in this area, including the risk of choking with this approach, and some of the benefits. She will also discuss the popular statement ‘food before one is just for fun’.  


About Nicola and Happy Tums

Happy Tums is owned and run by Registered Nutritionists and child nutrition experts Nicola & Theresa. It was whilst weaning their own children that they realised just how much out-dated and conflicting advice is directed at parents during this time. Together, they condensed everything they knew (both theory and practice!) into a 2 hour workshop and so ‘Happy Tums’ was born.  Since then they have gone on to provide support to parents on all aspects of feeding their children including managing allergies and fussy eating. Their continued and extensive learning in this area mean they are experts in their field and have helped thousands of families (including one or two famous faces) to start their adventures in weaning!
