Who teaches Teeny Weaning workshops?
I, Sarah Lindsay Brown, will teach all of Teeny Weaning’s workshops. I am a registered dietitian with eleven years experience, who has trained in the NHS, worked in the baby food industry and worked as a nutrition scientist for the dairy industry. The latter had a focus on managing and updating educational resources and a website both which covered pregnancy nutrition, weaning and toddler diets. Along with my experience I will offer trustworthy, up-to-date and balanced advice based on the latest research and government guidelines. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and am a member of the British Dietetic Association.
What is the difference between ‘Teeny Weaning’s’ Weaning workshop and NCT’s ‘Introducing Solid Foods’ workshop?
Teeny weaning is dietitian-run, it offers fun, relaxed and interactive classes, tailor-made classes and access to email support for the 2 months following the course as well as information to take away. You can benefit from having your own private dietitian in the comfort of your own home. Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and they are trained to use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. The NCT is the largest charity in the UK for parents. NCT teachers undertake professional training that involves adult education that specialises in preparation for birth and parenthood as well as baby feeding, but generally they are not dietitians or nutritionists.
When should I book my classes?
Pregnancy Food and Nutrition workshops can be booked at any stage of pregnancy, however you may benefit from attending early on in your pregnancy.
New Mums Food and Nutrition workshops can be booked anytime after you have had your baby or even before if you want to feel super-prepared!
Weaning workshops can be booked anytime after you have had your baby, though they are designed for babies 3 months to 1 year of age.
The Toddler Food and Nutrition and the Fussy Eating workshops can be booked anytime after your child has turned 1 and before their 5th birthday for Toddler Nutrition and anytime during childhood for Fussy Eating.
How much do workshops cost?
Workshops cost £35 per person (minimum 4 people). This includes a 2-hour session, with printed and online information and access to email support for the 3 months following the course. If you decide you want another workshop after your first you can enjoy 10% off the original price.
Can my partner attend the workshop?
All partners are welcome to attend workshops and the price for couples is £50.
