What will you learn?
- Why the traditional, ancestral foods are crucial for good health, from preconception onwards.
- Why certain foods were so precious to traditional cultures for fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding and for growing children.
- How to prepare simple meals for your baby (and your family) using these nutrient dense foods.
- Why your baby can easily digest certain foods and which foods are likely to irritate the gut and cause digestive (and other) issues.
- How to support your baby’s immune system to reduce risk of allergies, intolerances, poor health and digestive issues.
- Which foods are most beneficial for your baby’s brain development (cognitive skills, speech, social skills and more).
What happens on the day?
- We start by looking at the health and food of our ancestors. They knew how to be healthy, otherwise we wouldn’t be here. We look, too, at what happens to people’s physical development and overall health when they start consuming industrialised foods, and how the effects are compounded with each generation. We discuss how we can begin to reverse these changes and how food makes the difference.
- The baby’s immature digestive system is explained, as well as what health issues may arise when babies are given foods they cannot easily digest.
- This is followed by an interactive demonstration of how to prepare some of the foods we’ve talked about, and giving a taste to your baby – and try the food yourself.
- The workshop usually lasts 2.5 to 3 hours, with ample time to ask questions.
Who should attend?
The workshops are designed for parents, grandparents, child minders and other carers of babies (up to age 2).
Where & When
- Workshops can be arranged within 100 miles radius of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire (approximately). If you think you’re right on the edge of that circle, please get in touch to check whether we can come to you. Please see map below.
- Workshops are usually held in the baby’s own home. As the host, you can invite up to 5 like-minded friends to join you (babies welcome).
- It’s recommended that you book at workshop any time from when your baby is 2-3 months old. Whether your baby is 6 months, 16 months or 26 months, it’s never too late to make changes, especially if your child is showing signs that something isn’t quite right.
The Bagnall Centre for Integrated Healthcare (Chesham) has offered NutriBaby the opportunity to run Weaning Workshops in their superb Teaching Kitchen. We’re working out the details, so watch this space. If you would be interested in a Weaning Workshop at this lovely venue, please let us know.
