Weaning tips: How to help your baby eat well

Top weaning tips

Be inspired

Grab as many ideas as you can for safe healthy food, not just from cookery books, but supermarket magazines, healthy eating leaflets and posters in clinics to keep the journey fun for you and your child. Health and nutrition charity HENRY, works nationwide to prevent rising child obesity by ensuring infants are introduced to a good diet and kept active from day one.

Variety show

Don't fall into a trap of offering the same foods just because they work. Make the effort to create choice. The period following weaning is often a precious window to constantly encourage your baby to be adventurous with menus before they can become less accepting and fussy as toddlers. Buffets are your friend when you're out and about.
