Starting Solid Food Workshop:

An interactive workshop to provide information to help with understanding when and how to introduce solid foods to your baby. The Starting Solid Food Workshop which is currently being delivered virtually is aimed at parents with babies aged between 4 & 6 months. The workshop helps parents decide on a number of key questions, including; When is a baby ready to try solid food? What foods should they start with? When is a baby hungry and when have they had enough? How can you make meal times an enjoyable experience for both parent & baby?

The 1 ½ hr workshops are being run by the early years practitioners and are delivered virtually via Zoom every WEDNESDAY from 10am-11.30am. Parents are given useful web links where they can download resources including Start4Life’s‘Introducing solid foods’ which you can find here and First Steps Nutrition’s ‘Eating well: the first year’ which you can find here https://www.firststepsnutrition.org/

If you would like to join a workshop please e-mail childrenscentres@havering.gov.uk
