Simplify Solids - Plain and Slow Equals Gain and Grow

When we introduce and feed solids in a way that respectfully works alongside the child’s basic digestive biology we foster a relaxed disposition and support comfortable exploration of an infant’s food, body, and environment. This workshop helps to put the latest research, fads, and recommendations into perspective while providing a healthy, logical guide.

This workshop will teach you:
- The basic biology of an infant’s digestive system, maintaining balance at each age and stage.
- The ideal age to start solids.
- When to offer solids throughout a day to benefit sleep.
- Healthy food options from six months to one year, inclusive of what to avoid.
- The ideal quantity of solids at each age and stage.
- How much variety is truly good for our infant’s in the first six months of solids.
- About purees and Baby Led Weaning.
- How to make nutritious homemade solids.
