Infant Nutrition Classes

This class will answer your questions about how and what to feed your baby, introducing solid foods and textures, and establishing a healthy feeding relationship with your child.

Dietitians answer questions and show parents how to make their own baby food using a variety of kitchen tools; like hand mixers, food mills and food processors. Parents learn how to prepare vegetables, fruits, meats, meat alternatives, infant cereals. This class works to answer questions about:

  • feeding your baby

  • introducing solid foods and textures

  •  establishing a healthy feeding relationship

The two hour workshop includes a comparison of store-bought baby foods and homemade baby foods, highlighting why babies need to start on high-iron foods at six months, and why introducing different food textures is important. Parents are encouraged to bring babies to the class, which focuses on creating a positive feeding relationship.
