Introducing solids webinar: why, when, what and how much
Solid food gives babies the nutrients they need to grow and develop as they get older. Chewing solids also helps your baby’s speech muscles develop. Eating solids is important for baby’s social development too, as they start to eat the same foods as the rest of your family.
There’s a lot to think about when your baby starts solids. We’re here to help. In this webinar, we’ll explain:
- how to tell when your baby is ready for solids
- what foods to start with and how much to offer
- how to make sure baby gets the right balance of nutrients
- what foods to avoid
- how to introduce solids safely – how to avoid choking and what to do about allergies
- how solids might affect your baby’s digestion.
If you have a baby aged 4-6 months this webinar is suitable for you. It’s also suitable if your baby is younger and you want to be ready when the time comes to introduce solids.
In the webinar, you’ll be able to ask questions, share experiences, and hear other parents’ experiences and ideas.
