Another brilliant workshop brought to you in collaboration with New Shoots Early Childhood Center in Tauranga.

Whether you choose to follow a traditional weaning approach, want to know how to do baby-led weaning safely or combine the two. Infant feeding specialist and paediatric dietitian Rachael will have plenty of tips and research-based advice on how to help your child develop a positive relationship with food and their body from the first bite.
