When we introduce and feed solids in a way that respectfully works alongside the child’s basic digestive biology we foster a relaxed disposition and support comfortable exploration of an infant’s food, body, and environment. This workshop helps to put the latest research, fads, and recommendations into perspective while providing a healthy, logical guide.

This workshop will teach you:
- The basic biology of an infant’s digestive system, maintaining balance at each age and stage.
- The ideal age to start solids.
- When to offer solids throughout a day to benefit sleep.
- Healthy food options from six months to one year, inclusive of what to avoid.
- The ideal quantity of solids at each age and stage.
- How much variety is truly good for our infant’s in the first six months of solids.
- About purees and Baby Led Weaning.
- How to make nutritious homemade solids.

Newborns are welcome but there is limited space so if you have someone you trust to have bubs, and that is doable, then this may be best.
