Helping Parents with
I would highly recommend the weaning webinar and course to any new parents. My knowledge of weaning was very limited. Kirsty takes you through the process of weaning from the very start up to 12 months in a clear and simple way. She covers the knowledge and gives lots of practical advice. There are great online resources too. I now feel a lot more confident and I am looking forward to trying out her recipes. She is available for advice after the course too which is great. Highly recommended!Dr Jan MorrisonWeaning Webinar
As a first-time mum I was pretty terrified about the weaning stage for my baby and had so many questions. I did the weaning online course available on Kirsty’s website and it was so beneficial and helped me really develop Ben’s eating in terms of variety and texture right from the beginning. The advice was succinct yet answered all my questions, particularly around potential allergens and how to present food. It is really worthwhile! As a busy mum it’s so easy to dip in and out when you can in your own free time too. Now Ben is 11 months and eats everything, and really enjoys his food. Thank you so much Kirsty - I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this courseConnie Chambers Weaning Online Course
I have now attended both Kirsty’s weaning and her toddler feeding webinars, and both were so helpful, reassuring and fun!! Kirsty is brilliant at giving you all the useful information in an easy to understand way as well as making you feel encouraged and motivated to enjoy this journey with your child. Lots of tips, tricks and even some great recipe ideasLaura MageeWeaning & Toddler Webinar
Highly recommend 1:1 consultations. So informative & tailored to your child's individual needs. I have come away with so many practical tips and changes to help meet their nutritional needs in areas they are lackingHannah Cromie1:1 Consultation
As a first time mum I was very confused and overwhelmed at the thought of weaning. It seemed everything I read said different stuff. My daughter has a cows milk allergy and bad reflux so I didn’t really know where to begin. I did Kirsty’s work shop and it was brilliant. She is so passionate about helping parents on this journey. She went through everything in detail and I left the worship feeling confident and excited to start. We began weaning today and used lots of the tips and advice Kirsty taught us to help create a good foundation. Eliza loved it and it definitely took the stress out of it for me.Zara MiskimminWeaning Webinar
I attended the Zoom workshop on introduction to solids with Kirsty. I found it so informative and helpful. Everything I wanted to know was covered from how to go about starting, allergens, baby led weaning and so much more. No question asked was too silly. Kirsty was so lovely and it was like sitting have a chat with friends over a cuppa. I love that after the workshop Kirsty is still available and willing to answer any questions you have, she is just a wee message away. I would definitely recommend any parents starting solids to give the next workshop a wee lookJanet McDowellWeaning Webinar
Fantastic weaning workshop, giving reassurance and direction on the minefield that is weaning. Kirsty is so approachable and knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. Providing tips and advice as well as some wonderful family friendly recipes. Highly recommend anyone who's going down the weaning journey soon to take the workshop. Great to do a workshop run by a professional with up to date and safe advice. Thank you Kirsty and appreciative of your continued advice.Jennifer BarklieWeaning Webinar
I cannot recommend attending any of these weaning webinars enough. Kirsty is a mind of information. She has an excellent ability to communicate herself and makes what can be a very apprehensive time for mama’s seem it can actually be fun. I am in awe of her organisation skills, confident delivery and ability to take the stress out of baby lead weaning. Unbelievable. I genuinely loved it. I will be attending future sessionsTracy HughesWeaning WEBINAR
I attended the toddler feeding webinar today. I found it very useful - lots of helpful information and top tips from Kirsty. She made us feel relaxed and at ease - the conversation flowed naturally and all of our concerns and questions were answered. I love how her advice can be easily applied to the real busy life of a family! We can’t wait to try some of the recipes and activities Kirsty provided today! Thank you so much.Gillian MooreToddler Webinar
