Weaning babies onto solids

Introducing solid food into your baby’s diet can be a daunting task. When do I start giving solids to my baby? How do I start? What foods should I start with? What about lumps and textures, allergies and risk of choking?

Childhealthy has partnered with Bianca Parau, expert paediatric dietitian, to offer a comprehensive class for all parents and help answer all these questions for you.

What does the online class cover?

Bianca will guide you through many common questions that arise relating to introducing solids also known as weaning. Readiness, weaning style, prepping and storing of food, how and what to introduce, milk volumes and fluid, introducing allergens and different textures, maintaining essential nutrients, foods to avoid, gagging and choking. There is an opportunity for group discussion and sharing experiences with other parents in an informal and relaxed session, but with valuable information and key take home messages and guides.

This class is ideal for first time parents with young infants about to start or who have just started solid food, but relevant to all parents, however experienced, who may need some up to date advice.
