What will I get out of a class?

Our workshops are designed to give parents confidence and skills when it comes to feeding their child. We show you how to get your child eating family foods, rather than having to cook a separate meal for them. It’s a great opportunity to meet other parents, the classes are very sociable. Get top tips and nutritional advice relevant to each stage of your child’s development. You will leave with printouts of everything covered in the class and all the food you make during class.
