July 14, 2022

This episode's wonderful guest is Anna Ritan, an Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Nutritionist, with over 12 years experience, who specialises in paediatric and neonatal nutritional therapy and dietary education. Anna is also the creator of Nourish Little Lives.

This episode is all about starting your baby on solids. Anna and I talk about-

  • the best age to start babies on solids;
  • the benefits of waiting until 6 months;
  • the difference between purees and baby led weening, if one approach is better than the other and if you can do both together;
  • how to reduce your anxiety relating to your baby gaging or choking;
  • Anna’s favourite meal ideas for babies.
