Do you know how to recognise when your baby is ready for solid foods, and when to leave a solely puree diet behind? When is it the right time to start weaning? The session led by Jill Wheatcroft, Lecturer in Child Health will look at which foods at which stage, and why some should be avoided. You will learn about the advantages and disadvantages of baby-led weaning, how it works and how it differs from the so called ‘traditional’ method of feeding children solids. The session will also explore how to encourage your child to experiment with various foods and there’ll be time for informal discussions about favourite recipes for weaning and your questions.
