This is a very special time in a child's life, when you consider their health and long-term relationship with food. We as parents are the facilitators of our child’s genetic set up; from the womb - to the milk - to the dinner plate, we set up our children for life.
I consider this one of the most important online programs I can offer you to help you give your child the best start in life. What happens in the womb is your baby's genetic setup, and what we feed them is the gateway to health or disease. Of course, we want to choose health!
I have been presenting this as a live event for over six years and have now transformed into a more comprehensive and detailed webinar so you can listen to the information when it suits you best (probably during baby's nap time right!?) and in the comfort of your own home. I have also accumulated even more information and detail into this webinar, so you are guaranteed to have all the tools you need to provide your baby with everything he/she needs, and be confident and relaxed as this first major transition in your baby's life unfolds.
Here's what you will receive:
- Pre-recorded webinar.
- Starting Solids booklet (PDF) inc. recipes, feeding schedules, growth guidelines, foods to start with, and foods that has to wait.
You will know how to:
- Gauge when your baby is ready for solid food.
- Address your baby's genetic predisposition and how to tailor the foods accordingly.
- Be confident and worry free.
- Create a healthy environment for a lifelong emotionally sound relationship with food.
- Understand your baby's emotions and challenges around starting solids.
- Recognise any sudden food reactions and intolerances.
- Minimise your child's chances of allergies later in life.
- Make your own nutritious baby food, save time & money.
- Reconnect with your own invaluable mother instincts rather than get highjacked by marketing and commercial baby products.
- Adjust your baby's foods during vaccination times and other immune changes.
- Minimise the chances of a fussy eater when your baby is reaching toddler and school years
All you need to know about starting your baby on solids, for parents wanting to give their child the best start in life.
What Mothers Think Of The Stating Solids Course:
This course gave me all the information I needed to feel confident about starting solids with my baby. I loved the fact that it was short and simple to follow, and gave explanations as to why certain foods should be introduced at different times. It's so handy to have the pdf document as a support that I can go back to anytime. Thank you for putting together such an informative and easy to follow guide - Elise, mum to baby Camille.
This was very helpful and informative. I felt well informed and relaxed about everything when at the end. What i found most interesting was the foods to introduce. It's a lot easier than I thought. I recommend Anna-Maria's talk on solids! She made me feel very at ease and well informed. I feel more comfortable now. I was a little anxious before the talk but now I am a lot more relaxed about it. Thank you very much - It was amazing! - Karen, mum to baby Chloe Rose.
Anna-Maria's Starting Solids online course was extremely useful. I loved the way she presented information in a way that was easy to digest but still provided the reasons for her suggestions so I could run it past my own "does-it-apply-to-me-ometer". The length of the course was perfect for busy mums to get started. I will be recommending it to other mums for sure! - Kelly, mum of one.
A Little About Me, Your Course Creator:
I am a mum of 2 with a 3rd baby girl on the way. I have worked with children for more than 6 years and I am continuously staying up to day with the latest research on Paediatric nutrition. With my clinical and personal experience, I have created this comprehensive online course to help you feel confident and know how to support your baby the best! It truly makes a difference when you feed you baby the right foods and don't fall into the many fads and food marketing traps that can be so very hard to navigate through.
I help you understand what foods to start with and which foods come later. I educate you on how the food impacts your baby and how you can use food to strengthen their child’s immune and digestive system from the very beginning. I also clarify why some foods are important to avoid and why there are foods that are best to start with and why some need to come later. I wholeheartedly believe this is a time to really pay attention to how you help your baby connect, bond, and feel about food. You can do your baby a lot of good by considering your family history of illness, intolerances, and allergies, and the way you birthed your baby is also a very important factor here. Starting your baby on solids – the right way – can help minimise or eliminate allergies and intolerances that run in your family. Most importantly, it sets your baby up with a much more resilient foundation for his/her health and wellbeing.
These factors really define the foundation of your baby’s health – the platform on which they will build their long wonderful lives. Start right, and the rest will be effortless.
