Weaning workshop: How to start weaning

 How to start weaning:


  •         How do you know your baby is ready for weaning?
  •         Three checks of readiness you can do with your baby at home (or live now if they want to)
  •         Learn a fourth sign of readiness that no-one talks about
  •         Signs that are often seen as readiness but are a bit of a myth
  •         First foods
  •         How do feed the first meal including where you sit, how to offer etc
  •         What equipment you might need including how to choose an appropriate highchair.


Now you’re one, what’s next?


  •         Weaning actually continues till around the second birthday.
  •         Food refusal vs fussy eating
  •         Why babies start to eat less
  •         What you should do about it – division of responsibility
  •         The importance of food parenting or how you are around food so that your child grows up to have a healthy relationship with food.

Registered Dietitian & Children’s Nutritionist


I’m Sarah, and I’m an NHS Registered Dietitian & Children’s Nutritionist with over 20 years of experience. I advise on weaning babies, managing toddler fussy eating and help parents improve their children’s diets whether they have food allergies, constipation, weight issues, or just want to be healthier. I also teach ‘food parenting’ which is how you are around food to ensure your children grow up to have a positive relationship with food. I have a Masters degree, a Post Graduate Diploma and an Undergraduate Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics and I am also an SOS trained feeding therapist which means I can put both ‘what you eat’ and ‘how you feed’ your children together in my advice. You might have seen me in Mother & Baby or The Guardian or Made for Mums. I’m an expert consultant for businesses like Annabel Karmel, Tommee Tippee and Hovis and I also help nurseries with menu planning and nutrition.

I also have two little people of my own.
