As parents, we all want to give our children the best start possible, but it is easy to become overwhelmed with the amount of information and ‘health clutter’ out there. Should you start your baby on rice cereal? At four months or six months? Do you keep feeding milk on demand? What is Baby Led Weaning? What do you give your baby after he/she is past the pureed stage? What finger foods should you start with?
This workshop is taught by Navneet Dhillon of Dhillon Nutrition and Health. Navneet is a Registered Nutritionist who helps parents navigate through all the “health information overload” out there and supports families in eating well. She educates and inspires families through personalized consultations, interactive cooking classes, and workshops. As a busy mother of a toddler, Navneet understands that time is at a premium, and teaches families how to approach nutrition and health in a practical, easy-to-apply manner.
In “Baby’s First Year: Setting the Foundation”, Navneet will educate parents of infants on the importance of good nutrition and digestion during this critical first year of a baby’s life.

• How and when to wean your baby when breastfeeding or formula-feeding
