I often get asked about our weaning journey, so here are a few tips which I found useful when starting out! 😊

🥑 Enjoy it. Find a time when you and your baby are both relaxed to make the process of starting weaning easier.

🥑 Keep it varied. Try a variety of vegetables to keep the meal colourful, interesting and nutritious.

🥑 Plan ahead. Keep basics like prepared tomato sauces in the freezer so you can make dinner quickly.

🥑 Keep it simple. Don’t spend hours preparing dinner every day. You’ll only get disheartened if most of it ends up on the floor. Babies can also get overwhelmed if there’s too much variety in front of them.

🥑 Let them eat what you eat (without the additional salt or sugar). Not only is it more convenient, it means they’ll be used to your cooking as they get older.

🥑 Be creative. Most babies will happily eat herbs and spices (in moderation!) so try to introduce interesting flavours early on. A drizzle of olive oil, chopped herbs, or a squeeze of lemon juice make vegetables taste a lot nicer!

🥑 Eat with your baby. Babies will enjoy mealtimes more if they feel like they’re part of something. Try to eat at least one meal with your baby so they can watch and learn.

🥑 Give them encouragement. Smile, laugh and congratulate your baby when they put food in their mouths. Children enjoy positive reinforcement and it makes them more likely to do it again.
