WEANING AND COMPLEMENTARY FOODS

Day: Saturday
Dates: 7th October 2017
Time: 3:00pm – 4.30pm

When breast milk is no longer enough to meet the nutritional needs of the infant, complementary foods should be added to the diet of the child. The transition from exclusive breastfeeding to family foods is referred to as complementary feeding and covers the period from 6 months to 18-24 months of age, and is a very vulnerable period. Delay or failure to fully transition could lead to stunting of growth and malnutrition.
As a mum, you need to be well informed to navigate this transitional period as well as you can. There are many questions Mums have about the best food to start with, drinks to give (or not to), quantities to give during weaning, feeding time-tables amongst others. This session will adress all the issues above and seek to put you at ease as you prepare to transition your baby. Do come prepared with your questions and learn practical things you can do to make this process as informative and as practical as possible.
