Starting Solids

A two hour workshop to provide families with the education and the tools to understand when and how to introduce solid foods to their baby at 6 months old.

Workshops are being run by Family Action and will take place at the four children’s centres in ABSS areas: Cambridge Road, Centre Place,  Friars and Summercourt. The HENRY organised course helps get your baby off to a great start!

The workshops are run at the four children’s centres in A Better Start Southend areas and will help you decide:

  • When your baby is ready to try solid food
  • What foods to start with
  • When your baby is hungry and when they have had enough
  • How to make meal times an enjoyable experience for both of you

It is only recommended to attend one workshop as the information provided will be repeated for each one (but don’t forget that your Health Visitor is an invaluable resource too).

For more information or to book call 01702 220810 (choose option 1).

PLEASE NOTE: Creche is not provided for the workshops, but you are welcome to attend with your baby.
