Holistic Weaning (Solid Foods Introduction)

(One-on-One Education/Support)

After being born, entering the world of food is probably your baby’s biggest next step and is often a confusing time for parents as there is so much conflicting information available.

 

I can help however!

 

I prepare new parents to make informed choices when it’s time for baby to explore the world of food. During my holistic weaning support we discuss all the topics where you will be faced with choices.

 

I provide you with current information, the practical know-how of how to cook and simple solutions to prevent common pitfalls down the line…

 

 

Holistic Weaning Workshop – Getting started

 

  • When (not) to start (guidance as per the Luxembourg’s Ministry of Health (LMH), World Health Organisation (WHO), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), UK Department of health, European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (ESPGHAN)

 

  • Baby-led weaning (hot topic) versus traditional weaning and best of both worlds!

 

  • What to buy (or rather what not to buy), suggested reading, useful resources.

 

  • Store bought jars vs mama’s own cooking (I encourage wholesome home made cooking but there is a time and a place for jars as well, we are not all super mamas! Learn how to super-charge store bought food)

 

  • What to avoid giving your baby:  Our focus is on good quality, real food and eliminating processed products

 

  • Options for First foods and how to cook it (Note: I am not a nutritionist, a strong emphasis is being placed on carefully introducing easy to digest, real food and having the appropriate discussion with your health professional)

 

  • Tips to prevent a fussy eater

 

  • The healing powers of fermented products (immune system building! even more important if baby was born via C-section)), bone broth, coconut oil etc

 

  • There is no “one size fits all” approach – learn to read your baby and what to do when reactions arise

 

  • Your attitude, how you talk about food and the relationship with food your baby is starting, modeling behaviour that will set your child up for success
