Register for NEW Live Online Starting Solids Workshops + Greek Yogurt Snowball Recipe for BLW *VIDEO

 
 

I’m very excited to announce that I’ve listened to your requests and added a LIVE Online Starting Solids Workshop to my offerings. Check out all of the upcoming dates on my calendar and grab your spot now! Just like my in-person classes, these online sessions will have very limited spaces available. So you’ll still be able to engage with the class content, enjoy live food demos, and ask all of your questions.

Speaking of questions, I get tons about how to feed soft liquid textures like greek yogurt when focusing on self-feeding (vs spoon-feeding). Watch this video to get one of my all time favourite healthy recipes for self-feeding greek yogurt, Snowballs! My little guy Fred has been scarfing these down on the regular. The best part is that the recipe only takes minutes to make, uses 4-5 simple healthy ingredients, and can be switched up to work with what you have at home. You don’t want to miss this one! Watch this video and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel to see more of our adventures in starting solids.

Enjoy!

Starting Solids & Baby Led Weaning Basics with Motherhood Uncorked

A few weeks ago (during the most epic snowstorm of the season!) I sat down with Cortney, mother and creator of Motherhood Uncorked, to talk all things Starting Solids. We had such a great time covering all the basics including: when to start, how to start, what baby led weaning/feeding really is, food allergies, and how to feed your baby safely. This is a must watch for all of the parents out there who aren’t feeling confident about starting solids. I know how scary this transition can be, and always love to be able to offer some support and advice for parents. Watch Video

Family Friendly Homemade Meatballs - Perfect Iron Rich Recipe for Starting Solids

Family Friendly Homemade Meatballs - Perfect Iron Rich Recipe for Starting Solids

Meatballs are a great option for a healthy family dinner and a perfect way to start incorporating iron rich meats into your baby's diet. They can be paired with a whole grain pasta, tomato sauce and veggies, or some roasted or steamed veggies for a quick dinner. I usually make a double batch with fresh ground beef, and freeze a bunch for future evenings when we need a fast healthy meal.
