‘Moving & Munching’ is made up of two fun and informative sessions, for parents of children aged (or soon to be aged) between 4 and 8 months.

As a new parent, it can be difficult to know how to go about introducing solid foods and what issues you need to be aware of now that your baby is (or is getting closer to) being on the move and making those first attempts to crawl. Our ‘Moving and Munching’ course will be able to answer any questions you may have and provide you with a good base of knowledge for what to do over the coming months.

The Moving session is run with and Early Childhood Advisor from Sports BOP and covers the development of fine and gross motor skills, how babies learn through play, age appropriate toys for your baby and how to keep them safe when they are mobile. We will also help you to identify activities that will help your baby further develop their language skills, social development and help you to stimulate their learning, both in and out of the home

The Munching session is run with Catherine Garney, a Holistic Nutritionist and covers when and how to start introducing solids and appropriate nutrition for your baby until they reach the toddler stage. We will discuss making your own baby food and nutritional recipes do this, alternative feeding methods such as Baby Led Weaning and also cover how to continue to include milk in your baby’s diet. You will receive a copy of Alison and Simon Holst’s Baby Food & Beyond recipe book as well as information and links for further recipes and support to help you adjust for changes in textures, tastes and the quantity of solids over time as your child grows.

The ‘Moving and Munching’ course is a great opportunity for you to connect with other Mums and Dads who are also entering into this new phase with their child.

Our passionate, qualified and experienced speakers are here to help provide you with all the information you will need. Developmentally the ‘Moving and Munching’ stage is a fascinating one, and parents who are armed with the right information will enjoy it all the more.
