Wean the Weans

Are you wondering when, how and what foods to start giving your baby? Come along to our 4-week Wean the Weans programme. You can learn about and discuss weaning and have a go at making your own baby-friendly food.

Our Wean the Weans classes are open to families who have a young baby and want to learn more about weaning.  Current recommendations say to introduce solid foods along with baby's usual milk at 'around 6 months of age'.  Solids should never be given before 17 weeks.

The classes will give you the knowledge and confidence to give your baby the best start to eating healthy food for the rest of their life.  A creche is usually provided so bring baby along.  If you are interested speak to your health visitor or contact us.

Did you know some families are entitled to free vouchers every week to spend on milk, plain fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables, and infant formula milk. You can also get free vitamins.  Ask your health visitor for more information or visit the the NHS Healthy Start website.
