Infant & Toddler Nutrition Packages

Are you confused by all of the conflicting advice on feeding your child?

How do I know when my child is ready to start solids? Should worry about food allergies? What types of foods and in what quantities can I feed? How do I know if my child is eating enough? How do I make my own food for my child?

Infant nutritionFeeding your child can be an exciting milestone and a big step for both child and parent. It can also be an overwhelming time with so much conflicting advice on the topic. Leah will guide you through the stages of feeding from infant to toddler and will answer your questions and concerns about feeding.

Both of the following packages contain an education session and a practical cooking session to equip you with the knowledge AND the skills to achieve your child’s optimal nutrition!

Infant Nutrition Package

The program is divided into two parts. In the first part of the program you will learn about infant development and feeding basics such the transition to solids, age-appropriate foods, and reading your child’s fullness and hunger cues. You will also learn to understand the importance of the Feeding Relationship and its impact on lifelong eating habits. The second half of the session is an interactive cooking session.  We will explore simple baby food recipes and you will learn how easy it is to make healthy, tasty meals without spending hours in the kitchen. You will take home a list of healthy recipes and snacks to help your child on the road to healthy eating.

Toddler Nutrition Package
